Dieppe's commercial and industrial development has occurred thanks in large part to its strategic location. Located at the heart of the Atlantic Provinces, Dieppe is central to more than two million consumers within a 300-km radius.
Dieppe is located near several major Canadian and Northeastern United States markets offering access to more than 70 million consumers within a 24-hour delivery time. The region's superior road, rail and air transportation network makes Dieppe a growth-oriented location. Canadian National (CN) rail services are also available within Dieppe's Industrial Park.
Located at the crossroads of three national and provincial highway networks easily linking New Brunswick with markets in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and beyond, Dieppe is also home to the Greater Moncton International Airport (GMIA) and its newly expanded runway and passenger terminal facilities. In 2012, the GMIA exceeded 615,000 customers combined with cargo volumes of almost 23,000 metric tonnes. In 2013, the number of passengers at the airport rose to 647 000 (5.3% increase) and nearly a 8.5% increase in cargo traffic.
Combined with these assets is Dieppe's close proximity to three year-round deep-sea ports providing easy access to markets. The Port of Saint John (155 km), the Port of Belledune (250 km) and the Port of Halifax (250 km) offer ultramodern facilities all within under three hours travel time from Dieppe.
