Transportation & Logistics

Truck with container on highway, cargo transportation concept.

Businesses and stakeholders operating in the transportation and logistics sector in Canada are facing more pressure than ever to deliver goods consistently, safely and on time – all while the industry continues to evolve. However, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and doing so requires you to contend with a wide range of external factors across multiple jurisdictions, ranging from the weather conditions in North America; to supply chain management; to finding the right transportation mode, carrier and route; to incorporating new and innovative technologies. Urban congestion also generates supply chain delays, while Canada’s sparsely populated regions pose infrastructural challenges of their own. In addition, regulatory authorities are increasing their focus on environmental protections and stepping up enforcement efforts with respect to enhancing transportation safety, among other things.
