Advocacy

Milton Logistics Hub

The Brampton Board of Trade has been actively working on behalf of the business community to encourage approval of this very important hub.

Overview-in-brief:

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.
