CPR Boosts Role in EMP Container Program
Dec 1, 2001 12:00 PM
Canadian Pacific Railway has increased its stake in the EMP Container Program, a move that broadens the company's range of intermodal services in North America. A domestic interline container service, EMP facilitates interchange of containers between member railroads including Union Pacific Railroad, Norfolk Southern, and agent railroads such as CPR.
Expanding its role in EMP recently, CPR contributed its own domestic containers and extended the program to key markets. EMP provides CPR customers shipping between Canada, the United States, and Mexico access to a large service network for domestic containers. The network serves Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Winnipeg, Canada; Chicago IL, Minneapolis MN, Philadelphia PA, and Newark (Oak Island) NJ. Along with its participation in the North American Container System, CPR offers a choice of cross-border container options.
CPR's expanded EMP participation provides greater flexibility and better access to modern equipment. At the same time, CPR and its partners can tap into efficiencies gained by moving more traffic in containers on the growing doublestack network.
