Cranbrook is fortunate to be in a major transportation nodal point where a variety of transportation modes are available to allow cargo to move regionally, interprovincially and internationally. As a central point between many origins and destinations, Cranbrook is an attractive place for collection and distribution of goods and services of various industries.

Established as a railway and resource town, Cranbrook has a long history with the Canadian Pacific Railway. Trains travel to and through Cranbrook daily from the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan, and other key B.C. locations.

Cranbrook is also one the few locations in the province with an international railway port. This means that US bound cargo spends significantly less time in transit than it would leaving from elsewhere and that Cranbrook can deliver its business to the world.
