Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) will start moving A.P. Moller-Maersk traffic through the ports of Vancouver and Montreal on March 1, 2021, under a multi-year rail agreement. It applies to both dry and refrigerated freight.
The agreement follows a September announcement that CP and Maersk will build and operate a transload and distribution facility, expanding the railroad’s existing Vancouver Intermodal Facility.
“We are proud to provide safe and efficient rail service to the world’s largest shipping company, and with Maersk we see a strong relationship developing,” CP President and CEO Keith Creel said.
“Today’s news coupled with the announcement of the Vancouver transload facility back in September are evidence of the power of our operating model, our people and of our shared commitment to sustainable growth. Furthermore, our unique land holdings and co-location opportunities, network advantages, and commitment to service excellence continue to create win-win scenarios and capacity for our customers and the broader supply chain.”
