The newly-formed railroad Canadian Pacific Kansas City will rely on Schneider National for intermodal service under a deal announced today. Schneider will act as the “strategic intermodal carrier” for CPKC’s north-south corridor between Chicago and all major points in Mexico, according to a release. The trucking carrier will start moving freight on CPKC’s network by mid-May. The carrier also touted the deal as a sustainable solution for shippers as it saves 700 million pounds of CO2 annually by working with railroads that can move a ton of freight up to 500 miles on a gallon of fuel. In January, Schneider began a new West Coast intermodal arrangement with Union Pacific and has an existing relationship with CSX on the East Coast. Its intermodal fleet consists of 28,000 containers, and Schneider hopes to double its intermodal business by 2030.
