A new freight rail service between Hamilton and Montreal, involving the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority, CN Rail, and Hamilton Container Terminal, aims to reduce truck traffic on highways and cut greenhouse gas emissions. This weekday service, supported by a $5 million investment in modernizing equipment, will enhance supply chain capacity in southern Ontario. It offers a cost-effective alternative for businesses and could potentially remove up to 200 trucks from the road daily. However, the project’s success hinges on the Canadian government’s support for a Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) facility. The service is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 70,000 tons per year by shifting supply chain movement through the area.
