Canadian Pacific (CP) has launched a new international intermodal service through the Port of Saint John. The inaugural train carries containers from the Hapag-Lloyd vessel Detroit Express bound for intermodal terminals on the CP network in Canada and the US. CP gained access to the Port of Saint John through connections with EMRY and NBSR with CP’s purchase of the Central Maine & Quebec Railway (CMQ), completed in June. CP’s route is the shortest between Atlantic Canada and key North American markets. By the end of the year, CP anticipates it will be able to offer 24-hour service between Saint John and Montreal.
