CN, DP World Sign Comprehensive Service-Level Agreement

MONTREAL — CN and DP World, operators of the Centerm Terminal in Vancouver, announced  the signing of a comprehensive Service-Level Agreement designed to further enhance the competitiveness of Canada’s Pacific Gateway and improve services for customers.

The agreement ensures best practices are followed to improve productivity with the aim of increasing market share.

This agreement follows other recent CN supply chain collaboration agreements with ports on both the west and east coasts of Canada – part of CN’s continuing drive to promote balanced accountability among all port stakeholders.

The CN-DP World Service-Level Agreement will ensure that best practice technology is utilized where appropriate to meet the common goals of the parties. The two parties hope these objectives are achieved through commercial means that avoid unnecessary regulation or government intervention. CN and DP World will work closely on all matters related to security, in coordination with the relevant government agencies, with the goal of branding Centerm Terminal in Vancouver as a secure point of entry to North America.
