Make it, Move it, Ship it: Careers in the Goods Movement and Supply Chain & Logistics Sector in Hamilton
For skilled workers ready for a rewarding career, Hamilton’s Goods Movement and Supply Chain and Logistics sector is a bright prospect. It is an industry that thrives in the exact kind of environment Hamilton provides – an established infrastructure with close proximity to major commerce hubs (Niagara region, Toronto and the United States border). No other municipality in Canada is so ideally suited to all four major modes of transportation.
This report gives an industry overview of air transportation, rail transportation, marine transportation and truck transportation, as well as supply chain management & logistics. The results of a survey with local goods movement sector employers is included.
