CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA — Canadian Pacific (CP) set a yearly record for shipping grain and grain products in 2020.
CP moved a total of 31.32 million tonnes during 2020. At year’s end, CP also completed its best ever quarter and best ever December for hauling these commodities.
“Hard-won achievements like these require commitment and focus across the supply chain, but special credit must go to CP’s customers and their dedicated employees,” said Joan Hardy, vice president of sales and marketing grain and fertilizers of CP. “Their work to create a safe, efficient supply chain is an essential ingredient in our ability to deliver Canada’s crops to consumers at home and around the world.”
In the fourth quarter of 2020, CP moved 8.84 million tonnes of Canadian grain and grain products, which beats 2020’s second quarter, the previous record, by 5.1%. December 2020 totals came in at 2.84 million tonnes, beating out the previous record set in 2019 by 13.6%.
