About 75 percent of what Saskatchewan produces is exported; continued development of the GTH will allow the province to capitalize on some of the world’s largest shipping volumes.
The GTH brings together rail, highway, and distribution centers into a shipping and logistics hub. This hub supports the Asia-Pacific Corridor: an initiative to establish world-class infrastructure to support import and export activities from Asia.
