Canadian Pacific (CP) is establishing a new multi-commodity transload terminal that offers transportation and distribution services from CP’s Côte Saint-Luc yard in Montreal.
The terminal will be built by CP in multiple phases and operated by TYT Group, a Quebec-based freight transportation service provider. The transload terminal will offer multi-commodity transload services and logistics solutions to customers in urban centers along the east coast.
"We continue to leverage our strategic land holdings and invest in transloads across the network to create additional connections, improve service and provide our customers with new end markets," said John Brooks, CP executive vice president and chief marketing officer. "With a great supply chain enabler like TYT Group, this project enhances our footprint in the Montreal area by building capacity and expanding our ability to provide customers with value beyond rail, through trucking and transload services."
In the first phase, CP will build a new 118,000 square foot rail-served facility for the receiving, unloading, carrying and delivery of rail traffic. The facility is surrounded by more than 4,000 feet of existing and adjacent track, and the facility’s interior incorporates track infrastructure sufficient to accommodate more than 18 railcars. Phase 1 is currently scheduled to be completed in June 2020.
"Group TYT is proud to collaborate with CP to bring this unique project to Montreal," remarked Patrick Turcotte, TYT Group president and CEO. "Strategically located inside CP's Côte Saint-Luc yard, this multi-commodity transload will offer customers better optionality and more consistent service overall. Our agreement with CP is built on service, reliability and trust and we look forward to working together to provide long-term value to our customers."
