CP recognizes 51 shippers for hazmat safety practices


Canadian Pacific yesterday recognized 51 shippers with its annual Safe Shipper Award for safely transporting hazardous materials by rail in 2020.

Companies receiving the Safe Shipper Award transported at least 500 carloads of hazardous materials (non-intermodal) in 2020 with zero non-accidental release (NAR) incidents, CP officials said in a press release.

A hazardous materials NAR is the unintentional release of a hazardous material while in railroad possession that is not caused by a derailment, collision or other rail-related accident.

"CP's customers play a critical role in safely shipping essential products on our rail network. Encouraging and rewarding safe behavior across every aspect of our business helps to protect our employees and our communities," said Colby Bullard, CP's vice president of marketing and sales, energy, merchandise, intermodal and automotive.
