MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 4, 2017) - TFI International Inc. (TSX:TFII)(OTCQX:TFIFF), a North American leader in the transportation and logistics industry, today announced it has concluded a sale and leaseback transaction with Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust (PIRET) (TSX:AAR.UN) involving a portfolio of four of its properties. The all cash transaction of $135.7 million, which includes two facilities in each of Montreal and Toronto, will result in a pre-tax gain of $70 million.
