CN logs another grain movement record in October


CN announced yesterday that October was its single-best month for western Canadian grain movements.

The railroad moved more than 3.23 million metric tonnes of grain, surpassing the previous record set in October 2020 by more than 50,000 metric tonnes, CN officials said in a press release. During the week of Oct. 16, CN also set a weekly movement record of more than 806,000 metric tonnes.

The Class I achieved the record despite several challenges by working with its supply-chain partners, CN officials said.

“When the end-to-end supply chain runs well, we can move grain to ports and return rail cars quickly to elevators to get more grain on the move,” said CN Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Doug MacDonald.
