MONTREAL – CN, in collaboration with the Halifax Port Authority, stakeholders, ocean carriers, and customers, it will now offer integrated solutions through its Moncton, New Brunswick, yard aimed at reducing short-haul trucking in Halifax.

“This intermodal service will play a key role in overall integrated solutions that drive value and support growth in the Atlantic region,” said JJ Ruest, president and CEO at CN.

“We are pleased to be moving forward with this initiative that will benefit all of our partners and customers.”

“The CN Intermodal Ramp in Moncton continues to have a positive impact on truck traffic as containers are loaded and unloaded onto rail at that point as opposed to being trucked to and from Halifax,” explained Captain Allan Gray, president and CEO, Halifax Port Authority.

“Expanding the existing CN Intermodal Ramp in Moncton is showing positive results during this initial development phase, and we will continue working with CN, terminal operators and ocean carriers to find new ways of developing a more sustainable supply chain.”
