What are the advantages of working with YXS?

  1. Location, location: YXS is strategically located on the Great Circle
    Route, the shortest path between East Asia and North America, in a
    location where natural disasters are rare and land is abundant.
  2. Regional synergies: Prince George is a growing hub for logistics, with
    a CN Rail Inland port nearby, multiple ground logistics providers
    headquartered in the region, and rapid development along Boundary
    Road next to YXS.
  3. Reliable and efficient transportation networks: YXS is at the
    crossroads of Highways 16 and 97, is only 7 hours away from the Port
    of Prince Rupert, and is minutes away from a CN Rail line to eastern
    North America, allowing for simple access to major population centers
    without fears of congestion or highway closures.
  4. No purchase necessary: Airport lands are unique in that they are
    leased to developers (40 year terms) meaning purchase of the land is
    not required.
  5. Competitive rates: Lease rates are competitive, and the PGAA works
    with tenants to ensure that lease terms meet their business needs.
  6. Space to expand: YXS and the neighboring Global Logistics Park are
    home to a large amount of ready-to-develop land, meaning that more
    space is always available as business operations expand.
  7. Efficient permitting: The PGAA works with the City of Prince George
    throughout the permitting process, with average permit approval times
    being much lower than those in major city centers.
  8. Trade incentives: YXS is located in British Columbia’s first foreign
    trade zone, allowing access to a variety of concessions on the import
    and export of goods.
  9. Airside access: Locating your business at YXS allows for easy
    access to air transport options for your goods without worrying about
    congestion or slot times, meaning you can rely on your shipments
    getting where they need to go when they need to be there.
