Canadian National Railway and the Montreal Port Authority have reached a framework agreement aimed at increasing the gateway’s share of cargo shipped between Europe and markets in Ontario and the U.S. Midwest.

CN president and CEO Claude Mongeau said the agreement flowing from the memorandum of understanding will fulfil the railway’s objective of reaching supply-chain collaboration pacts with all of Canada’s major East and West Coast ports.

The agreement commits the two transportation groups to improving the port’s productivity and to leveraging the gains to increase their transportation market share.

The Montreal port is a leading gateway for freight traffic moving between North America’s industrial heartland and Europe. Its intermodal configuration allows trains to be organized dockside at terminals.

CN Rail’s operations service Canada and mid-America through ports and connections across North America.
