Canadian Pacific opens new office in Shanghai

Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (CP) has opened its new Asia office in Shanghai, China, as it looks to further build its book of business, strengthen existing customer partnerships and continue its pursuit of sustainable, profitable growth. 

“With a third of our existing book of business already touching Asia and exciting opportunities for growth, now is the time for CP to connect with our customers in Shanghai and across the Pacific Rim,” said CEO Keith Creel. “We have been working hard to strengthen relationships with our customers in Asia and are thrilled to finally put down roots in a market that is so influential to our business. We believe that providing on-the-ground support to connect with our customers is the best way to continue to enhance the best-in-class service CP has become known for.”   

The Shanghai office will serve as CP’s new Asian home base, to complement the company’s existing offices in Beijing and Tokyo. CP is a premier partner at the Port of Vancouver, the key entry point for Asian goods into the North American economy.

The dynamic marketplace in Asia requires CP to be adaptable and collaborative to serve its customers’ evolving needs. CP will be adding key positions in China to work with current and prospective customers to sustainably grow CP’s business and theirs.  

Corey Heinz, who has over 23 years’ experience developing and directing supply chain management programs for strategic accounts will lead the Asia office.
