Edmonton is exceptionally well-positioned. By air, it is Canada’s most northern major international airport at the intersection of existing global air routes. For ocean-borne cargo it is the closest major city to the fastest growing port in North America (Prince Rupert), and with two Class 1 railways, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific, it offers rail connectivity throughout the continent to points as far east as the port of Halifax, to the south to the cargo hub of Memphis.

Edmonton International Airport (EIA) prioritizes the importance of air cargo. Two new multi-tenant airside cargo buildings, a new multi-million dollar dedicated air cargo apron, a growing cargo village for shippers, freight forwarders, brokers and light manufacturers are some of the many attributes of this world class airport – and EIA, as recognized by Emirates in October 2012 demonstrates Code F handling capabilities.
