CN Posts Record Grain Movement for October

Canadian National Railway (CN) has reported that western Canadian grain movement for October reached 2.8 million metric tons (MMT), breaking the previous record of 2.7 MMT, which was set in April of this year.

CN has moved more than 6.7 MMT so far this year despite the wet weather, harvest delays and international trade restrictions.

“We are all part of the same supply chain, and as a railway CN fully understands the impacts that weather can have on the end-to-end supply chain,” said Allen Foster, CN vice president bulk. “Investment at every step of the supply chain – from producers and grain companies to CN’s investment in new hopper cars, increased network capacity, and a more modern locomotive fleet – all played a role in delivering a record month.”
