CN and CSX announce new intermodal service offering


CN and CSX have announced a new intermodal service offering between CN’s greater Montreal and Southern Ontario areas, and the CSX-served ports of Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey and the New York City metropolitan area.

“Over the long term, the freight market will increasingly depend on demand driven by the consumer economy and the rail industry must create new intermodal services that can successfully rival the over the road options,” said JJ Ruest, president and chief executive officer at CN.

The company states that their new intermodal service aims to convert long-haul trucks to interline rail services. The trains will run from the East Coast directly into the metropolitan markets of Toronto and Montreal via CN intermodal yards. 

The intermodal service agreement will come into effect on October 7, 2019.
