Shipping container shortages in Asia, traffic jams at ports, limited availability of dockworkers and truck drivers from Southern California to Singapore, higher shipping prices—all are part of a now-stretched supply chain due to the pandemic, according to a recent New York Times report. What is the impact on rail?
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.
Canadian Pacific’s (CP) intermodal shippers can now use the blockchain-based TradeLens platform to securely and transparently transfer container-shipping documents. The open-API platform will help them create, amend and share documents with consignees, beneficial cargo owners, customs agencies, dray operators, steamship lines and others.
