The market for Project logistics in Canada is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of more than 2.5% during the forecast period (2019-2024).
- Canada is the second largest country in the world and offers a vast source of natural resources which drive the economy of the nation. These natural resources include energy sources such as oil & gas, coal, renewables, minerals such as gold, silver, etc. New projects for extracting these natural resources and expansion of large projects requires shipping of heavy project cargo in the country.
- Western Canada is an important source for these natural resources and has a lot of major projects. Alberta is home to large amount of Oil Sands and also has one of the best over-sized load transport corridors in the world. On the other hand, the Eastern Canada has a lot of infrastructure developments. Among the infrastructure projects, the construction of bridges especially requires transportation of over-sized cargo. Hauling a larger-than-usual load involves logistical as well as legal challenges.
- As the world is becoming more digitized every day, communication is becoming instant. The companies involved in project cargo business needs to adapt digital technologies such as a mobile app or a software to communicate easily with engineering firms and project owners.

Key Market Trends
Need for high load corridors is rising
The inland transport of heavy cargo is very complicated and the vast distances from port to door, coupled with weather conditions and road restrictions during the spring makes it challenging for companies to move out-of-gauge loads. The Ports of Montreal, Vancouver, and Halifax are the major ports for general cargo in Canada. According to industrial sources, most of the project cargo is observed in the ports of Vancouver and Halifax. However, super-loads destined for Canada are generally observed in the ports of Houston, Tacoma, and Baltimore in US.
A coalition of transport organizations and ports in Pacific Northwest are working to entice heavy cargo to Pacific Northwest ports. A fund of approximately USD 500,000 has been raised by them for a proposed 1,300-mile multimodal high, wide, and heavy transport corridor. Most of the cargo imported from Asia and destined to western North America is imported via US Gulf ports, the proposed transport corridor eases the transit of energy and infrastructure project cargoes. A feasibility study was produced for moving mega-loads of up to 500 tons from Columbia River inland ports to Montana, which is the major port of entry into Canada. The proposed inland route could save nearly 1000 miles on US-Canada leg alone. The cargo discharged at Pacific Northwest ports is as much as 28 days and 6,209 miles closer to Canadian destinations than cargo shipped through the Panama Canal and discharged at Houston or other Gulf ports. This could save the transportation costs for heavy cargo transported to western Canada as well as can boost the project cargo movement through the port of Vancouver. As per the estimates of the coalition, the savings in transportation and other logistics costs could reach USD 5 million per shipment.
Some of the areas in the country face challenges in transport over-sized cargo due to lack of a dedicated road network able to handle such loads and it also results in high transportation costs. For instance, Ontario lacks a permanent highway network that can transport large equipment and fabricated components without lifting power lines or making detours to avoid standard-sized bridges. According to a study in 2015, over-sized cargo can be supplied faster from international locations such as South Korea through Houston to Fort McMurray on a permanent over-dimension corridor than from a location near Toronto.

Oil & Gas Project Logistics in Canada
The project cargo market across the globe is expected to be boosted by rise in oil prices through the short-term. However, the oil prices are expected to decrease over the long-term which leads to decline in new project investments. Canada has the world’s third-largest crude oil reserves, after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, more than 95% of which are comprised of oil sands reserves in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia share the sedimentary basin for natural gas production in Canada. The oil and natural gas industry is a key driving force in the Canadian economy that accounts for approximately 7% of Canada’s GDP and employs more than 500,000 people. The nation’s oil and gas and mining sectors are premier export markets for the US providers of machinery, equipment and related supply chain goods and services.
Alberta remains as the top region, followed by Saskatchewan. Across the North, the oil and gas industry is far less active. Production is in long-term decline in the Northwest Territories and remains minimal in Yukon. Canada’s oil sands resources exist in three major deposits in Alberta: Athabasca, Cold Lake, and Peace River. Athabasca, the largest in size and resource, is home to the surface mineable region. All other bitumen must be produced in situ or by drilling. The projects in the oil & gas sector requires transportation of large structures such as pump boxes, pressure vessels, storage tanks, and other related components.
As of June 2018, there are 125 oil and gas projects in the inventory with a combined capital cost of CAD 393 billion, which represents the projects that are either under construction or planned in the next 10 years. The total energy sector projects are valued at CAD 510 billion, which includes electricity and other projects. Oil and gas accounts for 77% of the total value of energy projects in the inventory. Out of the total 125 projects in the oil and gas sector, there are 51 oil sands-related projects (e.g., in situ, mining, upgrading and refining) in the inventory, representing CAD 137 billion in potential investment.
The project logistics market in Canada is fragmented in nature due to presence of a large number of players involved in provision of project cargo services. Consolidation is the current trend being focused by the logistics provider in order to expand the presence and services offered. Similar trends were also observed in Canadian logistics market as well as in specific to project logistics.
For instance, Germany based Rhenus Group has expanded to Canada by acquiring Canadian logistics provider Rodair in March 2019. Rodair is specialized in providing customized logistics solutions and the core businesses of the company include international freight forwarding, project logistics, courier services, warehousing and distribution, third-party logistics services, and e-commerce solutions. In April 2018, one of the largest heavy-hauling and oversized transportation consortiums was formed in Eastern Canada by three prominent enterprises in Quebec. Quebec Stevedoring Limited (QSL), Groupe Robert (Watson and Sycamore) and Express Mondor together signed an agreement to create Mondor-Watson, which targets markets in both the United States and Canada. QSL is the majority shareholder of the new entity, while Mondor runs daily operations.
Apart from just transporting the heavy cargo, the companies should be capable of handling multiple tasks such as securing transport clearances, securing trained personnel, obtaining lifting and securing certified equipment, co-ordination with multiple contractors throughout the project.

Boeing's Everett Factory
The factory was built in 1967 for the Boeing 747 and has since been expanded several times to accommodate new airliners, including the 767, 777, and 787 programs. At 4.3 million square feet and 272 million cubic feet, it's the largest warehouse in the world by volume.
The size of your new facility will ultimately be determined by these large notions as well as specifics, such as pallet size, aisle width, load-bearing capacity, and more. An experienced systems integrator or warehouse design consultant can help you make sense of all of this data.
