Customers shipping to Western Canada out of the U.S. Midwest can now take advantage of additional capacity from a new transload service. Fast and flexible, our new Chicago Multimodal Service combines the advantages of road and rail for a complete end-to-end supply chain solution.
This new service offering includes pick up of palletized freight directly from your facility by 53ft road trailers for transport to CN's new distribution facility in Bridgeview, IL. There the goods will be transloaded into CN-managed 40ft containers and shipped seamlessly by rail to Western Canada for final delivery.
Our transload facility in Bridgeview, IL is only 16 miles from CN's Chicago Intermodal terminal. Our rail service to Western Canada runs 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Shipments can originate from a variety of points including Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Missouri or Kentucky. Our intermodal services extend well beyond our tracks with the convenience of road service and value of rail.
Take advantage of this new service and learn more about how CN can help keep your supply chain agile and competitive.
