Designed to attract logistics and supply chain clients select and acquire lands for the operation of their business, the Global Transportation Hub (GTH) in west Regina recently launched a new strategic alliance program with the commercial broker community in Saskatchewan.
The program was developed through a consultative and collaborative process with local broker representatives that included Michael Kelsey of Colliers International and Paul Mehlsen of NAI Commercial. “Our goal was to construct a working relationship based on industry best practices,” said Rhonda Ekstrom, Vice President of Business Development for the GTH.
In total, over 30 brokers attended the announcement and toured the GTH site in west Regina. Over 425 acres of land is currently developed and ready for sale. “Through this new alliance program, the GTH and brokers can leverage the combined expertise of our teams to attract clients looking to drive transportation, logistics and supply chain business outcomes,” Ekstrom said.
IMPORTANT TO GTH SUCCESS
The Hon. Bill Boyd, Minister Responsible and Chair of the Board of directors for the GTH said the new alliance program will be important to the success of the GTH. “By partnering with the commercial broker community, we have significantly expanded our reach and capacity to attract new investments,” Boyd said.
“It is a part of the ‘Saskatchewan Plan for Growth,” the Minister said. “Each new client stimulates job creation and economic activity for Saskatchewan and by working together we can build a stronger Saskatchewan for generations to come,” Boyd said.
For companies depending on domestic and global trade, the movement of goods is a key factor in the cost of product, the choice of business location and the ability of a business to diversify and grow.
“Strategically located within Canada’s Asia Pacific Gateway, the GTH is an integrated transportation and logistics hub that enhances access and connectivity from coastal ports to global markets. This new alliance program will only serve to create new opportunities for the GTH,” Ekstrom said.
