Canadian Pacific Kansas City announced the launch of the Mexico Midwest Express (MMX) Series premium intermodal service bringing customers the first truck-competitive, single-line rail service option between the Midwest and Mexico.

The MMX Series debuted May 11 with trains MMX-180 and MMX-181 which now link Chicago, Kansas City, Texas markets, Monterrey and San Luis Potosi, providing total transit time of 98 hours from Chicago to San Luis Potosi. Single-line haul efficiencies, combined with seamless cross border service, make CPKC intermodal transit times competitive with over the road trucks. Converting trucks to rail reduces emissions and makes highways safer, realization of the benefits of the CPKC combination.
