  • Articles and reports: 61-532-X19970013502
    Description:

    Using just about any yardstick (tonnage, value of goods, revenue earned, tons/kilometres), it is difficult to dispute the recent growth in air cargo traffic. Factors ranging from industrial globalization to business practices like "just-in-time" inventory management and aggressive off-shore marketing of Canadian goods and services have contributed to this increased activity. As local groups contemplate the purchase or lease of community airports, they are being advised to secure a solid cargo base in addition to passenger traffic.

    Description:

    "If you've got it, a truck brought it." When you stop to think about it, an increasing number of the things we use are transported to market for at least part of the way, by truck. The trucking industry is becoming increasingly important to the transportation sector of the Canadian economy. This growing importance can be attributed to several factors including the deregulation of transportation, the surge in trade with the United States and the evolving structure of the industry itself. It is within this context that concern for labour issues, including a driver shortage, has been voiced. The demands on drivers have increased, driver training is inadequate and as a result, there is a perceived shortage of qualified drivers. This study examines employment in the trucking industry from 1988 to 1994 by looking at various sources of employment data at Statistics Canada.

  • Articles and reports: 61-532-X19970013499
    Description:

    Issues affecting the transportation industry impact on the day to day concerns of Canadians. Changes in policy affecting transportation and trade have altered the landscape for the primary mode of commodity transport, trucking. Economic factors typically affecting the demand for trucking services are - the volume of production of goods for domestic and foreign consumption and exports and imports, interest rates and the value of the Canadian dollar. The supply of truck transport in turn is affected by the price of inputs, namely labour (drivers and helpers) and capital (straight trucks, road tractors and semi- and full-trailers). These variables are key determinants of the day to day activities of the industry.
