CP teams up with two terminal operators to boost productivity


Canadian Pacific recently reached agreements with terminal operators TSI Terminal Systems Inc. (TSI) and DP World Vancouver to improve the flow of containers through Canada’s West Coast ports.

A Global Container Terminals subsidiary, TSI handles more than 70 percent of the containerized cargo moving through the Vancouver, British Columbia, gateway. CP and TSI will coordinate working groups in operations, technology and marketing to identify tools and processes that could boost productivity, including better information systems.

Meanwhile, CP and DP World Vancouver will similarly coordinate the identification of available tools and processes — including IT systems — that could improve productivity for railroads, terminals and shipping lines.

“Between 2001 and 2008, collaboration between terminal operators and CP has led to a 229 percent increase in loaded import containers through Canada's Asia-Pacific Gateway terminals in Vancouver,” said CP President and Chief Executive Officer Fred Green in a prepared statement.
