Transportation: Mid Continent Trade & Transportation Corridor
Manitoba’s position at the heart of North America makes it a key part of the Mid-Continent Trade and Transportation Corridor, connecting Canada to a central North American market of 100 million people.
Through a system of connecting highways and rail routes, the Corridor provides seamless and efficient transportation linking major commercial centres in the Canadian and American Midwest, through the Southwest, and deep into Mexico.
Intermodal in nature, the Corridor allows cost-effective and safe movement of goods and people, minimizing both travel costs and time.
Manitoba trade with the US Corridor states alone (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas) was $15.7 billion in 2014 (Exports: $5.6 billion, Imports: $10.1 billion).
Key centres (markets) along the route include:
|Kansas City, KS, MO||
|Oklahoma City, OK||
|Dallas-Fort Worth, TX||
|Austin-Round Rock, TX||
