Transportation & Logistics
As North America’s largest tri-modal inland port, CentrePort Canada is home to numerous transportation, logistics, warehousing and distribution operations. CentrePort is serviced by three Class I railways (Canadian National, Canadian Pacific and BNSF Railway); an international trucking hub that includes two of Canada’s largest companies (Bison Transport and TransX), and a global 24/7 cargo and passenger airport (James Armstrong Richardson International Airport).
With 20,000 acres of prime industrial land and affordable labour and business costs, CentrePort is a natural location for growth and expansion in the transportation sector. For example, wages in transportation and warehousing in Manitoba are as much as 25% lower than wages in other major western Canadian cities. (Vancouver, Regina, Calgary cost comparison)
