CELEBRATING CPKC : A Merger In Pictures
On April 14, Canadian Pacific (CP) and Kansas City Southern (KCS) combined to create Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC), the first single-line railway connecting Canada, the U.S., and Mexico. The company marked the creation of CPKC by hosting a celebration event in Kansas City.
“Today…begins a new chapter of railroad history in North America. As we mark this once-in-a-lifetime occasion by driving the Final Spike in Kansas City, Missouri, where CP and KCS come together, we stand ready to bring new competition into the North American rail industry at a time when our supply chains have never needed it more.” – Keith Creel, CPKC President and Chief Executive Officer, April 14, 2023.
That day, CPKC also broke ground on a new yard office, the future location of its state-of-the-art U.S. operations centre. CPKC’s global headquarters are in Calgary, Alberta. Its common shares will remain listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
