The transportation sector in Canada is a demanding industry that never stops moving. Transportation provides the vital “back-bone” in our country that allows our economy to function efficiently. It covers many areas from importing supplies to manufacturers to delivering fresh produce to our grocery stores.
Road transportation continues to be the dominant method of moving goods between Canada and the U.S. According to Transportation Canada, 45% of good exported and 73% of goods imported were transported by trucks in 2011. In terms of dollars, $149 billion was exported and $162 billion was imported by trucks. Canadian truck drivers moved 225 billion tonne-kilometers of freight in 2010, up 8.1% from 2009. According to Stats Canada, the transportation industry represents 4.7% of Canada’s GDP with truck transportation being the largest contributor.
What it comes down to is that transportation by trucks is critical to Canada’s economy. For this to continue, freight businesses in Canada need well-trained & professional truck drivers.
CHET has established relationships with many trucking companies and driving agencies. Its parent company, the Musket Transport Ltd, which happens to be one of Ontario’s largest trucking companies, has agreed to give preferential treatment to graduates from the CHET school. Not only do we want to help you become a well-trained driver but we also want to ensure that you find a job.
