About Edmonton

Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta, Canada, is known for its strong ties to the freight transportation industry. The city's strategic location along major transportation routes, including the Yellowhead Highway and the Canadian National Railway, has made it a key hub for the movement of goods and materials across the country. In fact, Edmonton is home to one of the largest inland ports in Canada, providing access to global markets through its extensive network of road, rail, and air connections.

One of the most iconic features of Edmonton's transportation infrastructure is the Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) LRT system. The Light Rail Transit system, known as the LRT, plays a crucial role in moving both passengers and freight throughout the city. The LRT network consists of several lines that connect key areas of Edmonton, making it easier for businesses to transport goods efficiently and reducing traffic congestion on the roads.

Edmonton's history as a transportation hub dates back to the early 1900s when the city served as a major stop along the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The development of the railway system transformed Edmonton into a bustling commercial center, attracting businesses and industries looking to capitalize on the city's strategic location. Today, Edmonton continues to thrive as a major transportation hub, supporting a diverse range of industries including manufacturing, logistics, and distribution.
