CP inks deal with CMA CGM for Canadian service

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Canadian Pacific will become CMA CGM’s primary rail provider in Canada, servicing the ports of Vancouver, Montreal and Saint John, N.B.

CP’s  access to the Port of Vancouver and Port of Montreal, combined with CP’s strategic connection to Port Saint John via New Brunswick Southern Railway, will enable CP to move the majority of CMA CGM’s freight from Canadian ports to key Canadian and US Midwest inland markets.

“CP is proud to provide CMA CGM with safe and reliable service that includes the shortest route miles to key markets,” said John Brooks, CP Executive vice-president and chief marketing officer.

“CP’s dedication to best-in-class service is enabling supply chain recovery that will drive future growth opportunities for the North American economy.”

This agreement also recognizes the future growth opportunities connected to CP’s proposed combination with the Kansas City Southern, which remains subject to approval by the Surface Transportation Board.
