Halton Peel Supply Chain Council
(formerly Goods Movement Network)
Approximately 30 leading transportation and logistics companies in Halton and Peel Regions, in partnership with the Milton and Oakville Chambers of Commerce, and the Brampton and Mississauga Boards of Trade, have formed the Halton Peel Supply Chain Council, an organization dedicated to the advancement of the supply chain sector through collaboration, information sharing, and informed discussion.
“Supply Chain is integral to the prosperity – and future — of Halton and Peel,” says Scott McCammon, President and CEO of the Milton Chamber of Commerce. “However, it hasn’t always been fully recognized for the significant part it plays in the economic life of our regions. The Council will tell the story of supply chain, and engage with the communities and municipalities of Halton and Peel to strengthen the sector’s already substantial contributions in the areas of education, employment, and sustainability.”
Todd Letts, CEO of the Brampton Board of Trade, observes that “supply chain is one cluster where Halton and Peel have strong competitive advantage. The Council is a catalyst for even more investment and job creation for our regions.”
The Council will engage with communities in Halton and Peel Regions through information sessions, presentations, technical demonstrations, job fairs, and the annual World Class Supply Chain Summit, held each May in Milton.

CN announced its plans to build the $250-million intermodal rail facility, on 400 of the 1,000 acres the company owns in Milton, northwest of Toronto, in March, 2015.
The planned Hub would create 130 direct and more than 1,000 indirect jobs in Milton, already well-established as a thriving supply chain and logistics cluster, with more than 30 distribution centres.
The Milton Logistics Hub would strengthen the supply chain, and quickly. This is shovel-ready.
It can be constructed in two years, and fully operational by late 2022.
CN is committed to building the facility with its own money – no public funds required.
Reduced congestion: 1 intermodal train removes the 280 long-haul trucks.
CN has improved its fuel efficiency: by 39% over the past 25 years – recent purchase of 260 state-of-the-art locomotives to reduce emissions system-wide.
CN is an employer that listens and leads: only transportation company listed on two leading Corporate Social Responsibility indexes.
