“CP is committed to exceptional customer service and with direct ownership of Steelcare, we are better equipped to manage our own supply chain and utilize our in-house expertise,” said James Clements, CP Vice President of Strategic Planning and Transportation Services.
Steelcare is a transload and distribution hub providing transloading, warehousing and distribution services of steel products. Steelcare’s Plant Six facility in CP’s Aberdeen yard in Hamilton, Ontario, is a 168,000-square-foot facility featuring two drive-through rail and truck loading and unloading areas. Steelcare is able to handle up to 1.5 million tons of rail transload product in a given year. The transaction includes TransCare Logistics Corporation, Prometheus Six Inc. and East Port Warehousing & Distribution, said a release.
Projected yearly revenue as a result of the transaction is approximately $10 million.
The intent is to keep the current management structure and employees in place. Clements will also serve as Steelcare’s Executive Vice President.
