CP launches first international container trains from Saint John, NB
Date:2020-08-14 Readers:
THE Canadian Pacific Railway has launched its international intermodal service through the Port of Saint John, New Brunwick.

The first train carries containers from Hapag-Lloyd's 3,800-TEU Detroit Express recently diverted from the strike-bound Port of Montreal to Saint John,

"The Port of Saint John service offers shippers a compelling value: a congestion-free port with a world-class operator, matched with CP's precision scheduled railroading model," said CP president and CEO Keith Creel.

"CP has been without access to a deep-water Atlantic Ocean port for a quarter-century, and today I'm pleased to deliver a simple message: We're back," he said.

CP originated westbound train 251-11 this morning for the Montreal region at Brownville Junction, Maine, with the first Port of Saint John containers on connection from the New Brunswick Southern (NBSR) and Eastern Maine (EMRY) railways.

From Montreal, CP will move containers from the vessel Detroit Express on connecting trains to destinations that include Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Chicago and Minneapolis.

The first eastbound intermodal train to the Port of Saint John departed Montreal on Friday, August 7.

CP's route is the shortest between Atlantic Canada and key North American markets. By year's end, CP anticipates it will be able to offer 24-hour service between Saint John and Montreal.
