Tiger Trucking opens Moncton-area transportation hub – Truck News

Giant Tiger and its trucking division Tiger Trucking last weekend officially celebrated the opening of a Salisbury, N.B. transportation hub that’s been in operation since last summer.

The company has operated out of the Moncton area since 2019 but previously subleased space from another carrier.

“This location serves as a transportation hub to relay goods from our distribution centers in Johnstown, Ont., and fresh/frozen facility in Brockville, Ont., to support our store network in the Maritimes,” said James Johnstone, head of transportation for Giant Tiger.

“The Maritime transportation hub also allows us to add additional transportation partnerships with core vendors helping us to keep the operation moving. We are fortunate to have established great relationships with our equipment service vendors, and freight customers in the Maritimes. We look forward to growing strong partnerships and building a foundation for the future in the Maritimes.”

The transportation hub employs more than 70 people and helps the fleet improve its fleet utilization.

The facility features a five-door support and maintenance facility and will help Tiger Trucking serve its stores in the region.

“By owning our own transportation division, we can ensure products are delivered frequently, thereby reducing the footprint of our stores. We are also able to carefully monitor overhead, thereby passing the savings on to our customers,” Johnstone said.
