Global Logistics

Our strategic advantage

The Edmonton region’s northern location connects us to Asia through circumpolar routes. Our connections to sea through the Ports of Prince Rupert and Vancouver, as well as rail and road access to the United States, make us a vital international trade corridor well positioned to strengthen global supply chains.

The Edmonton region is an international manufacturing, cargo, and global logistics hub

The entire region is an inland port where air, rail, pipelines, and roadways converge with favourable regulations and the benefits of a Foreign Trade Zone.

Edmonton International Airport (EIA) is Canada’s innovation airport and is the largest in the country by land area. EIA is open 24 hours a day with no operational restrictions, moving roughly 48,000 tonnes of cargo annually.
