Transportation

Overview

The Alberta HUB region has a highly-developed roadway network, rail system and air service connecting the region nationally, internationally and south to the U.S. and Mexican markets – ensuring safe, efficient and cost effective logistics.

The Alberta HUB region is an important transportation centre on the Ports to Plains Corridor route linking the prairies and major Midwest U.S. cities to the Texas gulf coast. The two designated north/south routes, Highway 36 and 41 move oversized overweight loads in and through the Alberta HUB region to the oil sands projects in the Alberta HUB region and northern Alberta. The Alberta HUB region is a perfect location for manufacturing as all industrial districts in the Alberta HUB region are connected to these major highways.

The Alberta HUB region is part of the Eastern Alberta Trade Corridor (EATC), which offers direct access to international markets. The EATC is the northern portion of the Ports to Plains Corridor, extending from the Gulf of Mexico through the heartland of the United States and meeting with the Wild Horse and Coutts/Sweetgrass Ports of Entry into Alberta and the Eastern Alberta Trade Corridor.
