CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA — Canadian Pacific (CP) set a new record for shipping grain and grain products in the third quarter of 2020.

CP moved 7.72 million tonnes, up 10.8% compared with the previous third quarter record of 6.97 million tonnes moved in 2014.

“We are proud of the steadfast commitment and dedication the CP family has shown throughout the pandemic, which has been critical to Canada’s grain supply chain and to our customers,” said Joan Hardy, vice president of sales and marketing grain and fertilizers for CP. “The CP team showed itself ready for this fall’s harvest, supporting customers and their supply chains to get grain moving off the combine and to market. Customers tell us the crop that continues to come off the fields is large, and CP is ready to keep it moving.”

CP also set a new September record for shipping Canadian grain and grain products, moving 2.8 million tonnes and beating the prior September 2017 record by more than 8.4%.
