Capitalizing on its central location as the hub of eastern Ontario, Kingston is already recognized as a major transportation, distribution and warehousing centre.
From Kingston, it is only a 2-3 hour drive to three of the four biggest cities in Canada - Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal - and Syracuse, NY and markets of 130 million people within a days drive.
In addition, our location offers access to one of the finest transportation corridors in the world and U.S. border crossing just 30 minutes away at the 1000 Islands Bridge.
Kingstonīs tax rate for distribution centres is among the lowest in Ontario. Cost savings are found in lower land costs, property taxes, support service rates, lower labour costs, and attractive incentives to invest.
Add to Kingstonīs location and cost competitiveness, the stability and quality of its workforce, and its comprehensive slate of support services for the logistics sector - third-party carriers, courier hubs, custom brokers, information technology specialists, industrial maintenance services, welding, machining, and fabricating shops and wholesalers - and you have a winning investment opportunity.
