Moncton's array of industrial locations, strategic position, and skilled workforce present a compelling option to investors

With a quick swipe of her index finder, a McKesson Canada employee scans a product label, double-checks it against her master list, and puts the desired order and quantities of items in the "tote" that continues on its way through the company's new distribution centre in Moncton.
