Calgary’s Goods Movement Strategy

October 30, 2019

While goods movement is a vital element of transportation system planning, regulation, design and operation—as well as of land use, economic development and sustainability—Canadian cities vary widely in how they plan for it. The City of Calgary recently completed a multimodal goods movement strategy that received widespread industry and political support, and is now being implemented. This webinar addressed major aspects of Calgary’s strategy, including:

  • Key issues, many of which are common to other Canadian cities
  • Recommended actions and how they respond to stakeholder concerns
  • Emerging trends in transportation and logistics
  • The economic importance of goods movement
  • Data sources to describe goods movement
  • A unique public education campaign
