Transportation and Warehousing

The transportation and warehousing sector is thriving in Vaughan. As one of the largest transportation hubs in Ontario, this sector plays a crucial role in moving shipments all over North America.

Due to Vaughan’s proximity to Canada’s largest market, major highways, airports and intermodal rail terminals, companies have the potential to increase efficiencies and reduce costs significantly. This is why companies in transportation and warehousing are increasingly taking up Vaughan’s industrial space that was predominantly used for traditional manufacturing activities.
