CP Rail has reported that it has hauled more Canadian grain and grain products in the 2019-2020 crop production year than any in its 139-year history. In total, CP moved 29.52 million metric tonnes (MMT) this crop year, exceeding last year’s record of 26.77 MMT by 10 per cent. CP credits its 8,500-foot High Efficiency Product (HEP) train model for significant gains in efficiency. An 8,500-foot HEP train can carry in excess of 40 percent more grain than the 7,000-foot train model when combined with the additional capacity of CP’s new high-efficiency hopper cars.
