CN and CPKC Rail supplied a combined 96% of hopper cars ordered in grain week 17, a modest decline from the 99% order fulfillment performance seen the previous week.
However, on a combined basis it remained above the 90% performance threshold for the 5th consecutive week having averaged 95% order fulfillment on a weekly basis over that time period.
The decline in performance reflects a deterioration in performance for each of CN and CPKC, although more notably CN.
In supplying 93% of cars ordered by shippers in week 17, CN saw performance decline from the 99% order fulfillment performance they posted in week 16.
CN performance remains above the 90% performance threshold for the 2nd consecutive week and 4th time in the last five weeks.
CPKC performance declined very slightly with the railway supplying 98% of shipper orders in week 17 as compared to the 99% order fulfillment performance in week 16.
CPKC performance remains above the 90% threshold for the 6th consecutive week.
