CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA — Canadian Pacific Railway was expected to open its first permanent office in Mexico in April.
Traffic from Mexico jumped 25% in 1999 after joint-line rail services were implemented across Mexico, the United States and Canada, the company said. The joining of Canadian Pacific Railway with three of Mexico's privatized railways and Union Pacific in the U.S. to form CPR-MEX contributed to increased traffic, the company said.
Robert Ritchie, C.P.R. president and chief executive officer, said the office in Mexico City would further develop relations between Mexican railways and shippers.
