Take control. Get efficient. Move faster.

Saving You Money

From beef to plane engines, if you're shipping it long distance in a truck, we can move it in a container on CN Intermodal trains. Combined with our CNTL trucking service for pick-up and delivery, it's the optimal solution. Last year alone, CN customers saved an average of $1,040 on fuel, per container, using intermodal over trucking alone when shipping from Toronto to Vancouver.

Did You Know?

Rail emits six times less greenhouse gases than heavy trucks and consumes a fraction of the fuel to transport freight. We can ship the equivalent of approximately 400 laptop computers almost 200 kilometres on a single litre of fuel! This represents a true environmental benefit.

Keeping the Supply Chain On a Roll

CN has the most available capacity in North America and is the only railroad with connections to three coasts. With 23 strategically located Intermodal Terminals to serve you, CN gives you access to over 75% of the U.S. population and all major Canadian markets.

Our complete transportation solutions allow you to benefit from:

  • Door-to-door service
  • Fast transit times
  • Vast network reach
  • One supply chain enabler


Playing it Cool

Whether it’s keeping your beer, or ketchup, from freezing during transit, our EcoTherm product protects goods via a temperature-controlled, insulated 40-foot container that does not require fuel; contributing to a greener and cleaner transportation solution with significant fuel savings for our customers.

We're here for you!
