CN opens intermodal terminal in Michigan

Target Steel, the first customer to use Canadian National Railway’s new transload facility in Flat Rock, Michigan, at the Canadian/US border, will convert a large part of its traffic for steel coils from trucks to rail. This shift is expected to reduce related greenhouse gas emissions by up to 75%.


The almost 1,900 sqm new transload terminal is designed specifically for inbound train operations. Equipped with a 50 t overhead crane and a ten-car track capable of receiving covered gondolas transporting steel coils, it will facilitate a seamless transfer of coils from rail to truck, streamlining the distribution process. The project was supported by Michigan’s department of transportation office of rail to improve access to the rail system. (ben)
