CN WorldWide to offer international freight forwarding services

by Canadian Shipper

MONTREAL, QC-CN has formed CN WorldWide, a wholly owned subsidiary that will offer international freight forwarding services between Europe and North America.

Anita Ernesaks, a former CN vice-president of eBusiness and graduate of CN’s Railroad MBA program, has been appointed managing director of the new enterprise.

“CN WorldWide is an exciting new venture for the company. It will allow CN to offer shippers an integrated, door-to-door freight service, and position us to drive new containerized traffic through CN-served ports in North America," said James M. Foote, CN’s executive vice-president, sales and marketing.

CN WorldWide, based in Rotterdam, Netherlands – the largest container port in the world outside of Asia — will commence operations effective May 2005. It will schedule and manage the door-to-door movement of international shipments, including rail, trucking, maritime transportation and port handling, along with warehousing, customs and billing.

CN WorldWide will focus initially on shipments between Europe and Eastern Canada, including Ontario and Quebec, via the Port of Halifax, and later the United States, says the company.
