CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA — Canadian Pacific (CP) set a monthly record for shipping grain and grain products in November 2020.
CP moved 2.96 million tonnes during the month and it was the second-best month ever for shipping. This exceeds the previous November record in 2019, by 8%.
CP has shipped 11.13 million tonnes in the 2020-2021 crop year, surpassing the amount shipped at this time in the 2019-2020 crop year by 15%.
“From a combine’s first cut in the field to a ship’s departure from port, so many dedicated individuals, teams and organizations must come together to make grain transportation a success,” said Joan Hardy, vice president of sales and marketing grain and fertilizers for CP. “As we reflect on the record movements of grain this crop year, we must think about the hard-working people across the supply chain who've helped to feed the world in a year of great adversity.”
