Brandon lies at the crossroads of two major highway systems and two Class 1 Railroads. The Trans-Canada Highway (#1) passes east-west through the city while Highway #10 passes north-south. An added advantage is the new Eastern Access Route: a two lane highway that avoids downtown traffic, is designed for truck traffic, and leads directly to the industrial district that lies on the eastern edge of the city. Direct daily flights to Calgary, AB are provided by WestJet. 

 

Brandon’s location in the centre of North America combined with the multimodal transportation network provides multiple logistics efficiencies:
