Rail News: Intermodal

CPKC, Knight-Swift ink intermodal service agreement


Canadian Pacific Kansas City and Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings Inc. today announced a multiyear agreement to provide truckload intermodal services on CPKC's north-south corridor connecting Mexico, the United States and Canada.

Knight-Swift’s Mexico customer base will be able to use CPKC’s rail lines, terminals and cross-border access to make service more reliable and competitive, railroad officials said in a press release.

"This agreement creates compelling new transportation solutions for Knight-Swift's current and future customers looking for optionality and increased capacity in their supply chains," said John Brooks, CPKC executive vice president and chief marketing officer. "As Knight-Swift transitions their Mexico-U.S. traffic to CPKC starting in mid-May, we will focus on growth between [the] Chicago, Texas and Mexico markets."

Knight-Swift is one of North America’s largest and diversified freight transportation companies, and provides truckload transportation and logistics services, CPKC officials said.

CPKC already operates the International Railroad Bridge over the Rio Grande River at the U.S.-Mexico border in Laredo, Texas. A second span to expand the bridge’s capacity is under construction and slated to open by 2024's end.
