Logistics Industry April 8, 2015
A Major Canadian Hub
In early 2015, Toronto was ranked the best place to live in the world by the Economist. In addition to being a great place to live, Toronto is also a major Canadian hub for industry and the jobs and logistics that go along with doing business.
The Canadian market is constantly growing, and Toronto is one of the most critical gateways for importing and exporting to and from Canada. Finding a logistics company in Toronto is an advantage in that a Canadian partner understands the market, including what retailers require for compliant shipments and what networks are most effective for each type of shipment.
What makes Toronto your #1 choice for Canadian logistics?
- The Greater Toronto Area (known as the GTA) has the highest population (and highest population density) of any city in Canada, which makes it a high-demand area for mass retail and direct-to-consumer internet fulfillment.
- The city enjoys a sophisticated, integrated transportation infrastructure that includes well-maintained highways, efficient commuter and urban public transit, a vast system of internationally connected railways and worldwide cargo aviation systems. It also has one of the world's most extensive inland and international marine shipping facilities. Thanks to this integrated infrastructure, Toronto businesses are easily connected to the world, and importers gain key access to other Canadian markets.
- In addition to the modern network of highways and transcontinental railway lines that traverse the city, Toronto businesses are also well served by two large international airports, one being the largest in Canada: Pearson International. Pearson is a major hub for air freight in Canada.
- The city also has an impressive level of telecommunications traffic, keeping it connected to the world 24/7/365 so that you'll always be able to check on your inventory and your shipments.
