CN to offer intermodal service from Moncton to Halifax


CN last week announced it will now offer integrated solutions between its rail yard in Moncton, New Brunswick, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Offered in collaboration with the Halifax Port Authority, stakeholders, ocean carriers and customers, a new intermodal service is aimed at reducing short-haul trucking in Halifax, CN officials said in a press release.

"This intermodal service will play a key role in overall integrated solutions that drive value and support growth in the Atlantic region," said CN President and Chief Executive Officer JJ Ruest.

CN's intermodal ramp in Moncton "continues to have a positive impact on truck traffic as containers are loaded and unloaded onto rail at that point as opposed to being trucked to and from Halifax," said Halifax Port Authority President and CEO Allan Gray.

"Expanding the existing CN intermodal ramp in Moncton is showing positive results during this initial development phase, and we will continue working with CN, terminal operators and ocean carriers to find new ways of developing a more sustainable supply chain," Gray said.
