The transportation industry, whether in the local, national or international market, is intimately linked to the health of businesses and the economic climate. Any change in the level of activity in a market, be it a slowdown or an acceleration, will inevitably impact that industry and, consequently, the associated employment rate.
While the globalization of markets has now become an inescapable reality in business, the last few months have shown us that a sharp slowdown in local consumption and external trade is still possible. The issues related to the transport of people and goods have been and are still numerous. Planning is becoming more important than ever in this environment governed by both provincial and federal legislation and international treaties.
