Canadian Pacific and Hapag-Lloyd AG will be adding a call into Port Saint John, N.B., via a seasonal extra loader in another step forward for the growing Atlantic Canada port. This additional call follows their inaugural service call into Port Saint John in May 2021, connecting via CP rail service to inland markets in Canada and the United States. CP regained access to Port Saint John in June 2020 with the strategic acquisition of the Central Maine & Quebec Railway, which has connections with the Eastern Maine and New Brunswick Southern railways. This vital link to Port Saint John provides the shortest route between Atlantic Canada and North American inland markets, including a 269-mile advantage over our competition to MontrealToronto and Chicago, creating value for shippers across North America. Port Saint John has embarked on an enhanced modernization program that will increase container capacity to 800,000 TEUs and provide additional on-dock rail capacity in the coming months and years.
