the power of big data to measure truck flows across the Canada-US border, helping manage cross-border supply chains and plan for new boarder infrastructure.
Cross-border business and border management are critical to Canada’s economic future. Smart policy decisions in this area demand a deep understanding of economic development, geography, engineering, management science and political science. Researchers with the Cross-Border Institute at the University of Windsor, along with those at the Forum for International Trade Training, and the Canadian and Ontario governments are studying all these issues. The institute is located just steps away from the Windsor-Detroit border, the most important crossing for Canada-US trade, providing researchers with a unique perspective.
Research at the institute is revealing important trends in cross border transportation and the impact of policy decisions by governments on both sides of the border.
