The City of Sarnia in Southwestern Ontario has the largest population in Lambton County, with about 72,000 residents, according to the 2016 Census. The petrochemical and agricultural industries remain central drivers of the city’s economy, which explains why hauling raw materials and other products is lucrative in Sarnia.
Whether you are looking to start your transport business, expand your fleet, or become an owner-operator, GTA Financial Ltd. can work within your budget to get you the truck or trucks you need.
Trucking in Sarnia
The trucking industry in Sarnia is competitive, in part because the city connects to Port Huron in the US, via the Blue Water Bridge. This is the fourth busiest border crossing in Ontario, meaning that a large flow of business goes through the City of Sarnia.
The Blue Water Bridge border crossing is influenced by both the Free and Secure Trade (FAST) and NEXUS (frequent traveller) programs. The bridge forms part of the NAFTA Superhighway, connecting the American Interstate 94 (I-94) to Highway 402, and is arguably the most integral gateway on the north-south truck route.
Your business rivals include other trucking companies, including national carriers, as well as rail and air cargo transportation, but depending on your routes and the distances that you haul products, you can always succeed in Sarnia’s trucking industry.
