MONTREAL — Canadian Pacific (CP) officially opened its new multi-commodity transload facility in Montreal Sept. 15.
The facility will offer transloading services and supplementary intermodal transportation and distribution services from CP’s Cote Saint-Luc yard, with more space available for future expansions, stated a release. CP will operate the facility with TYT Group, a Quebec-based freight transportation services provider.
The new rail-served facility features 118,000 square feet of customizable space designed to receive, unload, carry and deliver rail traffic for various commodities. Surrounded by 4,000 feet of existing and adjacent track, the location is suitable for indoor or outdoor transloading operations, stated a release.
“CP is building capacity and expanding our ability to serve customers by providing reliable multi-commodity transload services and logistics solutions,” said Mike Mohan, a CP vice-president, in a statement. “The site also offers 50 acres of additional expansion capacity so that we can continue to extend CP’s reach to markets not directly served by rail.”
