CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA — Canadian Pacific (CP) will open its new multi-commodity transload facility in Montréal, Québec, Canada.
The new facility will offer transloading services and supplementary intermodal transportation and distribution services from CP's Côte Saint-Luc yard. CP will operate the facility with TYT Group, a Québec-based freight transportation services provider.
“CP is building capacity and expanding our ability to serve customers by providing reliable multi-commodity transload services and logistics solutions,” said Mike Mohan, vice president of sales and marketing, regional sales and transload. “The site also offers 50 acres of additional expansion capacity so that we can continue to extend CP's reach to markets not directly served by rail.”
The new 118,000-square-foot facility can receive, unload, carry and deliver rail traffic for various commodities. Surrounded by more than 4,000 feet of existing and adjacent track, the location offers indoor or outdoor transloading operations to keep goods moving efficiently on and off rail and throughout the broader supply chain.
The new facility location allows for access to highways 15, 20, 13, and 520 as well as the Port of Montréal and the Montréal-Pierre Elliott Airport.
