Grain Service Varied for Canada’s Two Major Railways Last Week: Ag Transport Coalition

CN and CPKC Rail supplied a combined 93% of hopper cars ordered in grain week 23, a decline from the 97% order fulfillment performance seen in week 22. 

The decline in performance reflects a decline for CN, with CPKC performance improving week over week. 

In supplying 89% of cars ordered by shippers in week 23, CN saw performance dip from the 99% order fulfillment performance they posted in week 22.

CN performance falls below the 90% performance threshold for the first time in five weeks. 

CPKC performance improved, with the railway supplying 99% of shipper orders in week 23 – an improvement from the 96% order fulfillment performance posted in week 22. 

CPKC performance remains above the 90% threshold for the 12th consecutive week.
