Manitoba is geographically located in the centre of Canada making it ideal for coast-to-coast and worldwide distribution. Centre Port, a $212-million expressway also gives us a distribution advantage in that it is the first inland port in the country that provides foreign trade zone advantages. Add to that our rail access to the US and Churchill, the transportation, distribution and logistics industry is thriving in Manitoba.

There are approximately 4,300 businesses and 40,000 people employed in warehousing, distribution, logistics, road, air and rail transportation as well as local transit and distribution.  The University of Manitoba, as well as a number of our other educational institutions turn out a workforce that is highly skilled and necessary to support this large and growing industry.
