Canadian Railways See Slight Drop in Grain Deliveries

CN and CPKC Rail supplied a combined 93% of hopper cars ordered in grain week 3, a decline from the previous week’s 97% order fulfillment performance.

The deterioration in performance in total reflects a decline in performance for CN and improved performance for CPKC.

In supplying 87% of hopper cars ordered on time in week 3, CN saw performance decline from the 99% order fulfillment performance they posted in each of the first two weeks of the grain year.

CN performance fell below the 90% performance threshold for the first time in seven weeks.

CPKC order fulfillment performance improved with the railway supplying 98% of shipper orders in week 3, an improvement from the 95% order fulfillment performance seen from CPKC in each of the first two weeks of the grain year.

CPKC continues its run with now 19 straight weeks with order fulfillment performance above the 90% threshold.
