MISSISSAUGA, Ontario—Manitoulin Transport has opened a new transportation terminal in Wawa, Ontario. The new terminal ensures that businesses in the region, including those in the mining industry, can benefit from consistent, reliable and exceptional service throughout Canada.

The new terminal sits on 1.8 acres of yard. With greater storage capacity than Manitoulin’s existing Wawa terminal it is able to handle twice as many shipments.

“This new, larger terminal demonstrates our commitment to Wawa and surrounding areas. It also emphasizes our readiness to support businesses here as they grow,” said Jeff King, president, Manitoulin Transport.

“As the provider of the widest direct coverage in Canada, Manitoulin goes beyond simply investing in major towns and cities,” said Don Goodwill, president, Manitoulin Group of Companies.

“More remote areas can also be highly strategic in building out a network of truly comprehensive coverage. As well, access to a reliable transportation partner who can provide a one-stop-shop for all their transportation and logistics needs, is just as essential to businesses in Wawa as it is to businesses elsewhere in Canada, particularly as the mining industry in Northern Ontario continues to expand.”

Manitoulin’s former terminal has been closed and employees have transferred to the new facility.
