  • 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:

    • What is it?: 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.
    • Job creation: 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.
    • Shovel-ready, No public funds required: 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.
    • Why approve the Milton Logistics Hub?
      Reduce 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.
