New rail service between Moncton and Halifax
In collaboration with the Halifax Port Authority, stakeholders, ocean carriers and customers, Canadian National Railways (CN) now offers a new intermodal service through its Moncton yard aimed at reducing short-haul trucking in Halifax.
“This intermodal service will play a key role in overall integrated solutions that drive value and support growth in the Atlantic region,” said CN. Expanding the existing CN Intermodal Ramp in Moncton is showing positive results during this initial development phase.
“The CN Intermodal Ramp in Moncton continues to have a positive impact on truck traffic as containers are loaded and unloaded onto rail at that point as opposed to being trucked to and from Halifax,” the Halifax Port Authority commented. (ben)
