Canadian National Railway Building a New Hub

Canadian National Railway is building a new hub just west of Toronto, at a cost of over $195 million (USD). Milton seems like a logical location, given it's proximity (about 30 miles) to Toronto, and the existing presence of major roadways around the area. CN believes that the new hub will help the railway and its network better handle the increasing demand for rail and intermodal freight. In addition, the rail network, local economy, and freight industry as a whole stands to benefit from CN's significant investment in infastructure.

The Intermodal and Full Truckload teams work closely with all of the major railways to help move freight as part of both domestic and International ocean moves. Many shippers in the US don't realize that the Canadian National network serves many US locations, in addition to obvious Canadian Routes. The company can move intermodal and full rail car shipments with destinations like ports of Vancouver, Prince Rupert, B.C., Montreal, Halifax, New Orleans, and Mobile, Ala., and the metropolitan areas of Toronto, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Calgary, Chicago, Memphis, Detroit, Duluth, Minn./Superior, Wis., and Jackson, Mississippi.

Our hope is that improved infastructure will lead to more scheduling options, improved transit times and efficiency, and cost savings that would be passed on to our clients.
