Maritime Ontario Terminal & Office Facility, Moncton, NB
This new $18 million, 90,000 sq. ft. terminal and cross-dock facility in Berry Mills, N.B., on the outer edge of Moncton, opened in October 2015. This Atlantic Canada hub sits on 46 acres of land, about 18 of which have been developed to house the facility’s 20,000 sq. ft. of office space and 70,000 sq. ft. of warehousing. The plan is to further develop the property as demand dictates. The cross-dock facility was intentionally built much wider than most, so that freight can be staged in the centre section and more strategically loaded to cube out trailers and containers. Another unique feature of the new terminals is the use of a costly new technology of roller compacted concrete yard, which is stronger than asphalt, so that trailers can be parked anywhere without concerns the landing gear legs will break through the asphalt. The new location, on a well-travelled main gateway into Moncton, attracted much attention during construction, and the high profile location has resulted in unsolicited calls from prospective customers.
