The Calgary Region is recognized as one of the most cost-effective places in Western North America to establish a business within the transportation and logistics industry. As an inland port, the region is a transportation hub connecting to major cities across North America. It offers the low cost and quick delivery time throughout western Canada and beyond.
The QEII highway corridor is 4 short kilometres away from Southbank and the US border can be accessed 215 km to the south. Moreover, with the completion of Calgary’s ring road, major highway arteries can be easily accessed in all directions without entering Calgary’s core.
Calgary’s YYC international airport hub is 58 km north. The new international terminal, including 24 new gates, opened in 2016, expanding what was already the third busiest airport in Canada and cementing YYC’s position as a major inland transportation hub.
