Think Canada Can’t Handle Your Distribution Needs? Think Again

As per this recent article in Canadian Transportation & Logistics on how Canadian firms [are] rethinking logistics business models that summarizes some of the findings from the Global Business Strategy and Innovation: A Canadian Logistics Perspective, in the last five years total annual investment in distribution facilities in Canada has grown from $674 Million in 2005 to $1.39 Billion in 2010, an increase of 106%.

There’s no need to service Canadian operations from US distribution centres. In fact, with lower operating costs in Canada compared to many traditional US hubs, it might even make sense to service the Northern US from Canadian distribution centres. It’s another option, and one that should be consider in your total costs of operations logistics models.
