Written by 

Canadian Pacific and the Province of Manitoba announced Thursday the signing of a 10-year memorandum of agreement that sets the framework “to further develop their collaborative relationship to enable long-term rail and road planning for the City of Winnipeg, rural municipalities, and elsewhere in the province to proactively mitigate road and rail proximity issues, improve the efficiency of the overall supply chain, and identify opportunities and actions to support future growth.”

“Canadian Pacific is focused on continuously improving service reliability, asset velocity, and productivity,” said CP’s Jane O’Hagan, executive vice-president Marketing and Sales and chief marketing officer. “This agreement extends the supply chain to include government. We applaud the Province of Manitoba for their vision in supporting a competitive, multi-modal transportation system.”
