We are pleased to inform you of some additional changes within our Canadian intermodal network. Effective March 21, 2021, we will be further diversifying our rail network to and from the Vancouver gateway. On this date, all Dry rail cargo moving between Vancouver and the inland points of Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg will begin moving via Canadian Pacific Railway. The first targeted vessel for this shift on both import and export will be the Northern Julie. Refrigerated cargo will continue to move via Canadian National Railway at this time.

As we continue to see high volumes across the network, this will help to further expand coverage through the Vancouver gateway. This shift will apply to both imports and exports.

Some key information is listed below for your reference.

Effective Date

This change will take place for vessels loading or discharging on or after March 21, 2021, starting with the Northern Julie. Bookings will reflect the appropriate ramp information. Any bookings that have already been made are in the process of being updated and revised booking confirmations will be sent.
