A company connected to OCS’s distribution warehouse recently received a federal cannabis processing licence.

Legacy Supply Chain, an omnichannel third-party logistics provider that operates the OCS’ distribution centre through their subsidiary Domain Logistics, received a standard cannabis processing licence from Health Canada in April.

The licence allows the company to expand its logistics services to include storage, transportation, and distribution of cannabis products to all Canadian licensed cannabis producers and expands on Legacy’s existing service capabilities by leveraging its experience in its omnichannel North American supply chain, says Mike Glodziak, President & CEO of Legacy Supply Chain. 

“This licence enables us to offer supply chain services that create value for the LP community in Canada,” he said. 

“Since legalization in 2018, we’ve operated the world’s most expansive recreational cannabis supply chain, ensuring the safe, secure, efficient, and responsible flow of products to conscientious consumers across Ontario. We are excited to partner with licensed producers, and are committed to providing innovative solutions that help them grow and scale their business across Canada.” 

The new licence and facility will allow Legacy to give an easier path into the Ontario market, especially for western Canadian producers. Rather than sending multiple shipments to the OCS’ central distribution warehouse in Guelph (managed by Domain), producers can now ship one large shipment to Legacy Supply Chain’s new facility. Legacy can then send those products into the central warehouse for the producer, explains Kyle Krug, VP of Corporate Strategy at Legacy. 

“The value we’re bringing to these LPs is the ability to help grow and scale their brands better,”  says Krug. “If you’re a western Canadian LP, you can now, instead of spending a lot of money and time and effort transporting your product into Ontario for real-time fulfilment, we have a distribution warehouse in Ontario that has one day access to the Guelph DC. 

“So essentially, for all LPs, but especially if you’re a western LP, you can shorten that time to market here in Ontario.”

Legacy manages all aspects of shipping, from the producer’s facility to their new processing centre, and from the processing centre to the OCS central warehouse. 

The processing licence from Health Canada allows Legacy to handle and store the cannabis products, but Krug says the company has no plans for any value-add processing under the licence.
