Canadian Pacific to build transload facility in Montreal
Canadian Pacific announced last week that it will establish a multi-commodity transload terminal at its Cote Saint-Luc yard in Montreal.
CP will collaborate with freight transportation provider TYT Group of Quebec to offer transload services and logistics solutions from the terminal to customers in major cities along the East Coast, CP officials said in a press release.
The terminal will be built in phases by CP and operated by TYT. The first phase, slated for completion in June 2020, will involve construction of a 118,000-square-foot rail-served facility.
"With a great supply chain enabler like TYT Group, this project enhances our footprint in the Montreal area by building capacity and expanding our ability to provide customers with value beyond rail, through trucking and transload services," said CP Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer John Brooks.
The new facility will be surrounded by more than 4,000 feet of existing and adjacent track. The building's interior will incorporate track infrastructure sufficient to accommodate more than 18 rail cars.
CP is considering other opportunities for the balance of its Cote Saint-Luc yard, company officials said. The yard's location offers easy access to highways 20, 13, 40 and 520, and is close to the Port of Montreal.
