Breaking Down Cross-Border Barriers

You want your business to expand and flourish, so you don’t want to be hindered by unnecessary barriers – especially when those barriers are just lines on a map. Enter VersaCold’s newest service: North America Transportation Solutions (VNATS).

Expanded global reach
The recent acquisitions of CPX and Gary Heer Transport, operating within VersaCold’s newly-created VNATS division, enhances VersaCold’s growth in the cross-border transportation market segment, including both standard and expedited truckload and less-than-truckload services for temperature-sensitive products. Adding such experience and expertise ensures we provide exceptional cross-border services to customers across North America.

A Dominant North American Footprint
Coastal Pacific Xpress (CPX)

CPX is BC’s largest refrigerated carrier specializing in the shipping of perishable and ambient products throughout Canada and the USA. While growing its presence in Eastern North America with cross-border services from Ontario and Quebec, it is a dominant presence in the West and especially north and south along the I-5 corridor between BC, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and California – with strategically located warehousing and cross-docking facilities along the way.

CPX offers Standard and Expedited TL cross-border transportation as well as Standard, and Expedited LTL services across the same routes. The CPX LTL is a multi-temperature service with the ability to split fresh and frozen goods in the same trailer.

CPX has an ocean of experience in temperature-controlled transportation. They provide industry leading delivery of highly-perishable products such as fresh produce, fish and meat products for blue chip customers across Canada and the United States.
