Trades, Transport and Equipment Operation
Transportation is the movement of goods and people around the world. This includes multi-modal transportation, or planes, trains and automobiles.
In Saskatchewan, there are eleven shortline railways, two first class railways (Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway), approximately 2,400 registered trucking companies, approximately 147 airports in Saskatchewan including two international airports in Regina and Saskatoon. Saskatchewan is home to some large international trucking companies as well as some of the best aviation companies in the country. Saskatchewan is home to Aircraft Maintenance Engineering program at the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technology where you can become an apprentice in the aircraft maintenance industry. Everything that is produced or grown in one place has to move to another location in order for the product to be sold. The shipping of these goods may seem simple, put it on a truck, a train, or a plane, but it is much more than that. This includes dealing with international shipping laws, coordinating multi-modal transportation including shipping vessels at ports thousands of miles away to ship the products overseas. This is the science of logistics. Logistics is the management of the flow of goods and services between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet the requirements of customers. If you are interested in seeing the world then the transportation industry may be for you. Whether it is flying around the world as a pilot, or moving cargo via a train around North America, or travelling across North America in a truck that is fully computerized this industry will provide you with a lifetime of experiences.
