Client Demand spurs new PBB distribution facility in Calgary

by Canadian Shipper

Citing increased customer demand, PBB Global Logistics has opened a new distribution center in Calgary.

The new distribution center provides logistics services and strategic advantages for PBB clients in Western Canada and the US, the company says. It is located in the heart of the city’s key industrial sector and is equipped with leading-edge technology to allow for efficient and effective supply chain management. To complement this growth, PBB has bolstered its Alberta workforce with the addition of 11 experienced logistics professionals.

The new 16-bay distribution center provides complete automated web-enabled warehousing and distribution solutions. It is equipped with radio frequency systems that allow for real-time processing and updating of inventory levels. The facility serves a variety of industries and businesses, and allows companies to benefit from economies of scale by outsourcing their inventory management.

Sanmina Canada ULC, a leading communications equipment manufacturer with assembly sites in Calgary, is among several local businesses to turn to PBB for supply chain efficiencies.

This is the latest in a series of PBB enhancements to take place in the West. PBB recently expanded its service offerings in Calgary, by integrating Project Cargo into its menu of logistics solutions. Project Cargo freight forwarding involves multi-phase large scale shipments, most often to remote destinations. Late last year, PBB also opened its new Integrated Logistics Center in Vancouver, BC, which provides complete supply chain solutions and access to key Asia-Pacific trade lanes. The fully integrated Vancouver facility provides global logistics services including International Freight Forwarding, North American Shipping, Warehousing & Distribution and end delivery systems throughout BC and the Pacific Northwest.

PBB also opened a new San Francisco office, to enhance its service offerings on the US west coast and Pacific Rim.

PBB Global Logistics, voted one of Canada 50 Best Managed Private Companies, employs more than 1000 people in 70 locations throughout North America. It offers fully integrated global logistics services including: International Freight Forwarding, Customs Brokerage, Warehousing & Distribution, North American Shipping, Trade & Regulatory Services, Corporate Audit, Parcel Logistics, Corporate Travel and through a North American network of automated facilities and world-wide strategic alliances.
