Canada’s Two Major Railways Come Through for Grain Service: Ag Transport Coalition

CN and CPKC Rail supplied a combined 99% of hopper cars ordered in grain week 16, an improvement from the 90% order fulfillment performance seen the previous week and the best single combined performance we have seen in the 2023-24 grain year to date.

The improved performance reflects improved performance for each of CN and CPKC.

In supplying 99% of cars ordered by shippers in week 16 CN saw performance improve sharply from the 84% order fulfillment performance they posted in week 15.

CN performance returns above the 90% performance threshold for the third time in the last four weeks.

CPKC performance also improved with the railway also supplying 99% of shipper orders in week 16 as compared to the 96% order fulfillment performance in week 15.

CPKC performance remains above the 90% threshold for the fifth consecutive week.
