CP opens Regina intermodal facility at GTH

Canadian Pacific opened its new Intermodal Facility at Saskatchewan's Global Transportation Hub (GTH) in Regina, SK, Canada.

The larger and more efficient facility, located on a 300-acre industrial footprint, is positioned adjacent to CP's mainline between Regina and Moose Jaw and increases capacity and service reliability for intermodal customers.

"Through clients like CP, the GTH is stimulating economic development through new jobs, private-sector investment and enhanced access to global supply chains," Minister Responsible and Chair of the Board of Directors of the GTH the Hon. Bill Boyd said. "As an integral part of the Asia-Pacific Gateway, the GTH is a timely opportunity for new business and investment."

"The actual concept and development of the GTH began more than five years ago and was predicated on CP relocating its intermodal facility from downtown Regina to our current site," said Chris Dekker, president and CEO of the GTH. "Today, as an anchor client of the GTH, we congratulate CP on completing its transition to our site and for its continued commitment to Saskatchewan's unprecedented new growth and development."

The new intermodal facility is designed to process up to 250,000 container handlings per year or five times more container handlings per year when compared to CP's former Regina terminal.
