Canadian Tire’s vehicle fleet includes 6,300 53-foot intermodal containers. The company, in conjunction with Canadian Pacific (CP), was also the first in the country to offer that container beginning in 1994, it notes.

“CP and Canadian Tire have been doing business together for nearly 90 years”

Containers are used to transload products from 40-foot ocean containers. “For every three ocean containers, we can place goods in two of our 53-foot containers, which saves a rail slot and offsets physical handling costs,” .

The company processes goods from four transloading facilities, three of which are located in Vancouver and handle freight crossing the Pacific Ocean. A facility in Halifax, Nova Scotia, receives freight traveling on the Atlantic Ocean.  

In addition to its intermodal container fleet, Canadian Tire also operates 4,600 chassis, 2,100 trailers and 87 power units, including tractors. The company uses third-party logistics providers to operate the majority of its fleet.
