CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA — Canadian Pacific (CP) set a new record for shipping grain and grain products in 2020’s second quarter. The new record of 8.41 million tonnes beats the previous record of 7.9 million tonnes in the fourth quarter of 2019.
The Canadian rail company also broke the previous June record set in 2014. In June 2020 CP moved 2.76 million tonnes of Canadian grain and grain products.
“The collaborative relationships CP has built with its customers, combined with responsive rail service, have contributed to another quarter of record-breaking grain movements,” said Joan Hardy, vice president of sales and marketing grain and fertilizers for CP. “The strength of the CP network and operating model continue to show themselves in these achievements. We stand ready to meet what we expect will be strong demand in the final month of the 2019-2020 crop year.”
