The announcement said the CN-TSI pact complements CN’s recent agreement with Port Metro Vancouver (PMV) designed to promote balanced accountability among all Port stakeholders.

TSI handles 70% of the containerized cargo moving through the two terminals it operates under long-term lease at the port.

Claude Mongeau, president and chief executive officer of CN, said: “TSI is an important partner of CN in serving the international steamship container lines calling at Port Metro Vancouver. This agreement aims to improve supply chain performance at the port by establishing a close working relationship with TSI in support of increased efficiency and service innovation.”
