Modes of Transportation

moving the world through southern Ontario


GOODS HAVE TO MOVE! PRODUCTION OF A CAR SEAT

Specialization in manufacturing =

Multiple locations

Multiple suppliers


GOODS HAVE TO MOVE!PRODUCTION OF A CAR SEAT

95suppliers ship parts to manufacturer- 23 in Ontario, rest offshore or U.S.

Manufacturer ships 4,000seats every day to one car assembly facility


GOODS HAVE TO MOVE!PRODUCTION OF A CAR SEAT

1,000 finished vehicles are shipped every day by rail, truck and sea

Purchase a new car?

You’ll have it within days


GOODS HAVE TO MOVE!THAT HUMBLE HEAD OF LETTUCE

Grocery store example –

● grown at a farm

● packed

● shipped

● stored

● transferred to local store - still at peak

freshness

Every step requires transportation and logistics!


SO, WHAT ISTRANSHUB ONTARIO?

Promoting Hamilton-Burlington/Niagara and surrounding area as a Hub for the movement of goods

Economic development organization

(for the goods movement sector)


SO, WHAT ISTRANSHUB ONTARIO?

Attract businesses that rely on,

or provide, transportation and logistics, create jobs

We’re already a natural transportation gateway

TransHub Ontario will leverage these assets


WHY ARE WE ANATURALHUB?

Close to the American border

- 3 busiest border crossings

Most densely populated consumer market in Canada

- 11 million within 2-hour drive

Bustling sea port

- Busiest on the Great Lakes, including Chicago


WHY ARE WE ANATURAL HUB?

Busiest courier cargo airport in Canada

Multiple rail lines

Good highways in all directions

Not gridlocked – easy access,

reasonable land prices


ARE THERE OTHERGATEWAYS/HUBS?

Canada has three major gateways:

● CentrePort - Winnipeg

● Asia Pacific Gateway - Vancouver

● Atlantic Gateway - Halifax

New ones emerging all the time:

● Canada, U.S., Mexico


ARE THERE OTHERHUBS?

Our model:

KC SmartPort in Kansas City, Missouri:

● builds on its central, Midwest location

● 8 years in operation: 60+ members

● one-million sq. foot Coleman distribution center just located there


POTENTIAL IMPACT

Projected job increase:

  • Up to35,000direct,

  • 24,500indirect

  • Source MITL


Employment Potential Growth


IMPACT OF BEING KNOWNAS A HUB

Where will jobs come from?

  • Warehousing/distribution – from steel to pharmaceuticals

  • Manufacturing

    – incentive to create goods here; transport nearby – e.g. Maple Leaf/Canada Bread


IMPACT OF BEING KNOWNAS A HUB

Where will jobs come from (cont’d)?

  • Importing and exporting

  • Logistics – increasingly high-tech field transportation companies: airlines, trains, trucking and shipping


DEFINITION OFLOGISTICS

“Logistics means having the rightthing, at the right place, at the right time”


LOGISTICS:A GROWING FIELD

Recent Hamilton CMA stats:

● 18,000 people already work in logistics/supply chain management!

● number has grown >8% since 2001

(25,000 including Niagara, 43,000 with K/W)

In Vancouver, logistics field grew by 10,000 jobs, or 25% since 2004 (launch of Asia Pacific Gateway)


HOW DID TRANSHUB ONTARIOGET STARTED?

Impetus: McMaster University’s Institute of Transportation and Logistics (MITL)

MITL research study looked at Hamilton’s opportunity to be a gateway city

Said Hamilton shouldn’t waste time on whether it wants to be a gateway


HOW DID TRANSHUB ONTARIOGET STARTED?

“By virtue of its considerable assets, this city is already a gateway. The question is, will Hamilton be a strong gateway or an underachieving one?”


MITL STUDY ALSOPROJECTED

Fully developed Hamilton-Niagara-Burlington Hub can boost regional GDP by $4.8 billion – National $10.2 Billion

Creation of industry “clusters”

Attraction of skills and talent builds knowledge economy

Creates a more sustainable community


GDP Potential Distribution
