Another business has expanded their operations to a new location at CentrePort Canada.
Arctic Beverages has opened up a 20,000-square-foot warehouse operation that will serve as the primary distribution hub for shipments to the company’s vast northern territory, which includes northern Manitoba, northern Saskatchewan, northwestern Ontario and Nunavut.
“We are very excited about CentrePort,” said Arctic Beverages CEO Sean Post. “This is about having a location where we can consolidate our loads for shipment, using CentrePort as a gateway for distributing products to our customers and to our branches in the north. It’s a win-win for us.”
Arctic Beverages is a franchise of Pepsi and has become a distributor of other products, including Frito Lay, Canada Bread, Nestlé and Parmalat.
The company hopes to explore shipping by rail in the future to accompany their existing distribution done by truck and air cargo.
