The Oshawa Harbour Commission and Oshawa Stevedoring Inc. announced the opening of a new transit shed in September, 2002. With this new addition, the total inside storage space available is now 6503 square metres (70,000 sq.ft). The new self-ventilated construction covers 4645 square metres (50,000 sq.ft).. It is built on a cement base with three drive-through doors to provide an inside loading area to protect weather sensitive cargo. It is also equipped with three loading docks for dry-van loading. The new shed has been built with a possibility to increase its size to 9290 square metres (100,000 sq.ft).
