Who we are

A remarkable journey

Who we are is shaped by what we stand for, by what we do best, by the lessons we’ve learned and the values we’ve developed during our remarkable transformation.

We’ve been through one of the most profound transformations in Canadian business history — an amazing journey from a rail industry laggard prior to privatization in 1995 to a rail industry leader today.

We’ve gone from a business focused primarily in Canada to a full-fledged North American railway – serving customers across North America and beyond and creating value for shareholders everywhere.

We are now a company that offers these integrated transportation services:

Rail
Intermodal
Trucking
Freight Forwarding
Warehousing and Distribution

 And we continue to deliver the goods year in and year out. In other words, we’re a world-class transportation leader.
