Transportation and Logistics

Toronto is a strategically located global city with over 158 million consumers within a day's drive from its centre.

The city enjoys a sophisticated, integrated transportation infrastructure that includes well-maintained highways, efficient commuter and urban public transit, a vast system of internationally connected railways, worldwide cargo aviation systems, and is among the world's most extensive inland and international marine shipping facilities. It is this integrated infrastructure that helps connect Toronto businesses to the world.

In addition to the modern network of highways and transcontinental railway lines that traverse the city, local businesses are also well served by two airports, including Pearson International Airport, the largest in Canada. In addition to moving cargo, Pearson International Airport offers non-stop and same-plane service on scheduled and chartered flights to over 180 destinations around the globe.

Along with the high level of physical traffic moving through the city, there is an equally impressive level of telecommunications traffic, which keeps Toronto connected to the world at all hours.
