Unmatched Storage Capabilities and Capacities
With over 25 years of experience, Amar is well equipped to handle any containerized goods. We operate a fleet of over 20 reach stacker and empty handlers across our service locations. In addition to our equipment, we own over 300 acres of land throughout North America permitted for outdoor storage of shipping containers.
To maximize our fleet uptime and fuel efficiencies while minimizing operator fatigue, we ensure our cranes are 5 years or newer. This is intended to ensure we maintain the fastest service turnaround times in North America.

To best serve your container shipping needs, we have strategically invested in properties located within 3km of seaports, railyards and distribution centres within some of Canada’s and the USA’s busiest markets.
Experts in Preserving Your Temperature-Sensitive Freight
Amar has dedicated decades to handling temperature-controlled containers for our valued clients. We take immense pride in upholding a zero-claims record over our 25 years of service.
In total, our container terminals are installed with over 1,000 hydro reefer plugs to keep your goods at their required temperature settings while in short or long-term storage. Even during power outages, we are proactively equipped with on-site generators to preserve your freight quality.
Safeguarding Stored Containers With Stringent Security Measures
In addition to our zero-claims record, Amar also maintains a zero-theft record since opening in 1998. We are committed to protecting the products you’ve entrusted in us with intensive security protocols across all storage facilities.
Security Entry/Exit Gate: Vehicles entering and exiting the terminal are scanned from multiple angles to capture any damage to incoming and outgoing containers. All vehicle license plates are recorded and documented. People entering and exiting our facilities must present government-issued ID which is recorded, documented and validated with facial recognition cameras.
Terminal Facility Features: Entirely fenced perimeters with barbed wire, security gates, 24/7 video surveillance covering all angles of indoor and outdoor property, LED lighting to deter security threats, staffed 24/7 by security personnel conducting around-the-clock patrols.
CBSA Approved Terminals: Following all CBSA security regulations to protect and prevent tampering of all stored freight.
Providing Leading Turnaround Times
Amar embraces cutting-edge technologies to keep our KPIs in check and enhance our service levels. By customizing our own Amar mobile app, we’re able to provide competitive turnaround times at our container terminals within 15 minutes or less.
The app features live tracking accuracies down to the terminal, zone, row and bundle, allowing our team to efficiently locate, collect and load your container onto your truck. Utilizing this app also allows us to reduce the amount of visitors on our premises at once, therefore minimizing the risk of potential incidents or accidents.
All Amar service locations also feature EDI integrations, allowing us to send data directly to your management systems or email so you’re always up to date on your container freight status.
Upholding Safety At Our Locations
As with all our operations, we have implemented comprehensive measures to keep our visitors and employees safe at all Amar service locations:
- Wearing PPE: All on-site staff and visitors are required to wear protections such as safety vests, hard hats and steel toed shoes.
- Safe mobility of trucks: We ensure trucks in our terminals are kept away from hazards (e.g. Not below or behind cranes, driving below required speed limits, using four-way flashers)
- Container handling practices: All employees must follow proper protocols regarding the plugging and unplugging of temperature-controlled equipment and locking and unlocking chassis.
- Condemning unsafe/unacceptable behaviour: We take action for any behaviour against our stringent safety guidelines which may involve a written warning, temporary ban or permanent ban.
