The Class I announced that November volume broke its previous record for carloads of Western Canadian grain and grain products shipped to the Port of Vancouver.
Canadian Pacific moved more than 17,150 carloads, or 1.54 million tonnes moved to the Asian export gateway.
“CP’s operations team continues to deliver for our customers day after day. Vancouver is a key outlet for Canadian grain to move to export markets, and is a very important corridor for our customers,” said Joan Hardy, CP Vice-President Sales and Marketing – Grain and Fertilizers. “This record is a testament to the dedication we have to providing service to our customers, and showcases the incredible momentum we have as a company. Once again, our operating model is showing its power.”
October was the company’s best-ever month for grain, totaling 2.64 million tonnes to all destinations.
Overall, CP’s November grain and grain products shipments totaled 2.50 million tonnes, and volume is up 2% from 2017 since the Canadian fall harvest push started in September.
“Working in close collaboration with farmers, producers, ports and the entire grain supply chain, we continue to deliver for Canada’s agriculture sector,” said Hardy.
