Moving Goods

Canada’s railways are an extension of our country’s manufacturing and natural resource sectors, providing an effective and competitive delivery system for domestic, import and export goods.

Our country’s railways have invested more than $13 billion in their infrastructure since 2002, ensuring that transcontinental traffic has access to global markets through Canadian ports. Importantly, Canadian rail freight rates continue to be among the most competitive in the world. Canada’s railways have also extended their reach by building a network of intermodal terminals in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Chicago, through which Canadian goods can flow to markets in North America and overseas. lntermodal service uses several modes of transportation to reach customers, and is one of the fastest growing sectors of the Canadian railway business.
