CN opens intermodal terminal in Wisconsin

On Friday, CN marked the opening of an intermodal terminal in Chippewa Falls, Wis.

Located 100 miles east of the Twin Cities, the terminal offers Wisconsin and Minnesota customers new supply chain options to ship and receive containerized goods, CN officials said in a prepared statement.

The terminal offers twice-weekly container service with fifth-morning availability from the West Coast. Located on an 8.5-acre site at CN's Chippewa Falls Yard, the terminal features a 2,500-foot-long intermodal loading and unloading track, and a grain transfer facility.

"This terminal gives companies in the upper Midwest direct and efficient single-rail-line access to new North American and global markets via our continental network, as well as the ports we serve on the Pacific, Atlantic and Gulf coasts," said Jean-Jacques Ruest, CN’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “In the years ahead, we see good opportunities to develop new traffic lanes to this facility from a number of ports across our North American network.”
