CANADIAN COMMODITIES | Countries desire a partnership with Canada to obtain oil, mineral, and food commodities.
Many countries and companies have turned to Canada to source products previously bought from Russia.
Since Canada is located on the same latitude and shares a similar climate and geographical features as Russia, the country can produce many of the same commodities, like crude oil, uranium, nickel, wheat, and potash.
What other commodities are countries and companies importing from Canada? Find out here.

RESHORING SUPPLIER | UNICOR brings manufacturing back to the US.
Over the past few years, supply chain disruptions have prompted business owners and manufacturers to look at reshoring and nearshoring.
UNICOR is a federal program that brings jobs back to US soil and provides products to companies with a much faster turnaround than ordering from overseas.
UNICOR operates out of modern factories and manufactures products for government, commercial and non-profit organizations and provides individuals in prison practical work skills for successful reentry into society.

MOVING MINERALS | Canada’s first rare earth mineral mine has started making deliveries.

3D PRINTING DELIVERS | How are 3D printing companies solving supply chain problems for North American businesses?
3D printing solves problems for companies looking to adjust their procurement strategies and build resilience in their supply chains.
When much of the world’s manufacturing is located in a handful of geographic regions, the slightest disruption can send a ripple effect of delays throughout the logistics network.
More companies are turning to 3D printing companies to source parts and adjust their just-in-time strategies.
What should companies know about partnering with 3D printing companies? Learn more here.
