A Strategic Distribution Hub Calgary is recognized as one of the most cost-effective places in Western North America to establish a transportation and logistics hub. Major retailers like Walmart and Target have selected Calgary as an integral part of their Western distribution strategy. This is due in part to Alberta’s low tax regime, Calgary’s growing economy, its geographic location, and its well developed and evolving infrastructure. Calgary sees a large share of activity from Canada’s busiest port, with 40% of imports through Vancouver being distributed through this city. As it continues to grow as a major transportation hub, Calgary enjoys a rich supply of low cost containers ready to be loaded. In addition, Calgary’s direct connection to CN’s network means easy and fast access to growing markets such as Edmonton, Vancouver, U.S. and Mexico. This powerful combination makes Calgary a major and expanding Canadian transportation and logistics hub.
Location, Location, Location! Located at the crossroads of McKnight Boulevard (Township Road 250) and Logistics Parkway (Range Road 283) in Rocky View County Excellent transportation connectivity to Calgary’s major transportation routes. • 3 km to Highway 1 • 5 km to Stoney Trail • 13 km to Highway 2 • 20 km from downtown

Rocky View’s Commitment to Conrich “The CN Calgary Logistics Park is located in the Conrich area, just east of the City of Calgary in Rocky View County. CN and Rocky View have worked together since the early days of the Logistics Park’s conception to bring this world-class development from vision to reality. Rocky View has articulated their commitment to growth in the Conrich area within its Growth Management Strategy, Agriculture Master Plan, Economic Development Strategy, and other long-range strategic documents. The Conrich area and CN’s Calgary Logistics Park are a priority in Rocky View County. The County is committed to respond to development inquiries quickly and efficiently through the very capable staff in economic development, planning, development services and engineering. Rocky View anticipates significant growth into 2013 which will support and fill the industrial base that the Calgary Logistics Park has become. As CN, as well as its agent CBRE meet with prospective tenants, Rocky View County will respond quickly and efficiently with the required development and building permits. CN’s Calgary Logistics Park is a priority in Rocky View County . In the June issue of Alberta Venture Magazine, Rocky View County was recognized as one of Western Canada’s best places for business and the No. 1 place for manufacturing and logistics. CN’s Calgary Logistics Park is front and center in this tremendous endorsement.” * Quote provided by David Kalinchuk, Economic Development Officer, Rocky View County

According to the AAR, railroads are the most efficient mode of transportation. On average, railroads move a ton of freight 436 miles per gallon of fuel – making them 3 times more efficient than trucks. As the leader in schedule railroading, resulting in an industry-low operating ratio, CN is recognized as the most fuelefficient rail operations (CIBC World Markets – April 2009). Facilities: At CN facilities, environmental protection is an integral part of management activities, CN is committed to the concept of sustainable development and our office building has been constructed using “LEED” like construction principles. Energy efficient lighting reduced energy costs for the intermodal yard and submetering monitors electrical consumption and efficiency for yard air compressors and other yard components.
