CN creates North American transportation services subsidiary

This year, Canadian National Railway Co. plans to expand its North American freight forwarding and logistics business. And the Class I has created a subsidiary to carry out that objective.

The railroad recently formed CN WorldWide North America, which will introduce and manage integrated transportation services, such as retail intermodal trucking, freight forwarding, bulk handling, warehousing and distribution, truck brokerage and customs offerings. CN plans to expand its North American network of freight-handling facilities.

“The expansion of these non-rail transportation services … gives CN the opportunity to strengthen its transportation service offering and provide more seamless solutions to its customers,” CN officials said in a prepared statement.

The Class I appointed Keith Reardon managing director of CN WorldWide North America to lead the subsidiary’s marketing and sales team. He previously served as assistant vice president of transload and CargoFlo, a bulk commodity transfer terminal network.

In May 2005, the Class I formed CN WorldWide, which offers international freight forwarding services between Europe and North America. Late last year, the subsidiary launched operations in China.
