Polar Express Transportation’s expanded temperature-controlled facility opened on October 29 in Langley, B.C., offering additional warehousing and scheduled delivery services into and throughout the United States and Canada.

Kool Pak° and Polar Express provide services for transportation, storage and delivery of temperature-controlled less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments.

Polar Express has storage capacity of up to 1,000 pallets for frozen, chilled and dry product.
In addition to Langley, B.C., Kool Pak° has temperature-controlled facilities in Washington State, Oregon and southern California. The companies offer transcontinental LTL services out of Ontario, Calif., to Texas, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York in addition to seven western states and Canada.
