CN recognized for supply chain contributions


CN has received the Supply Chain Management Association's (SCMA) first Nation Builder award, the organizations announced last week.

The award commemorates the association's 100th anniversary and recognizes the historical significance and future importance of building supply chains to Canada, according to a CN/SCMA press release.

SCMA chose CN for its "unrivaled legacy of economic and innovative contributions to building Canada's supply chain infrastructure," said Christian Buhagiar, the association's president and chief executive officer.

This year also marks CN's 100th anniversary, noted CN President and CEO JJ Ruest.

"While we are proud of the company's heritage, our focus is on the future of the supply chain and how we can play an active role in moving Canada's natural resources and our customers' goods to market safely and efficiently," he said. "We are focusing on investing in infrastructure, technology and solutions to increase our role in Canadian supply chain and across our international markets."

The award will be presented Thursday during the 2019 National Conference and Fellow Awards Gala in Montreal.
