McMaster partners with Peel to launch Smart Freight Centre

Senior government and academic officials gathered Thursday at Brampton’s Embassy Grand Convention Centre for the launch of the Smart Freight Centre.

The centre will be a one-stop shop for addressing some of the most pressing transportation and logistics issues facing Canada’s busiest commercial and residential hub. For example: How do municipalities deal with increased traffic as online shopping necessitates more delivery vehicles?
