Featuring Diane Gray, President and CEO of CentrePort Canada.
This is the first video in our series featuring CentrePort Canada, which is Canada’s largest inland port featuring over 20,000 acres of land that brings together industrial space with land, rail and air transportation. This connects Winnipeg coast to coast to coast, connecting businesses, suppliers and customers — making Manitoba the nucleus of North American shipping and cargo transport.
“That allows companies to manage their supply chains,” explains Diane Gray, President and CEO of Centreport Canada. “Since we started CentrePort seven years ago, which was a complete startup at that time, we’ve attracted 49 new companies to the inland port. I think we all share a common goal, which is the economic and social success of our community, and the companies that are located here are very committed to that.
“What we’re going to see really is the future of economic development in Manitoba. That is what CentrePort is bringing to our capital region.” There’s no doubt that this goal is well on its way.
Stay tuned for future videos in the series featuring Red River College, Fort Garry Fire Trucks and more.
