CN has recognized 11 of its intermodal customers for their sustainability practices that are aligned with the objectives of the CN EcoConnexions program. Under the CN EcoConnexions Partnership Program, participating companies work to reduce carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency – one of CN’s key sustainability objectives. The 11 winners under CN’s recognition program are: CMA-CGM, Cosco, Hapag Lloyd, Kruger Products, Maersk Line, MOL, Mondelẽz Canada, NYK, OOCL Canada, Target Canada and Walmart Canada. CN will plant 110,00 trees next spring in recognition of its customers’ commitment to sustainable business practices.
CN’s transportation of Western Canadian grain during the 2013-2014 crop year has surpassed its prior historical record and exceeds what it promised the Canadian government in mid-February, a full month before the government’s order-in-council took effect requiring railways to move specific volumes, the railroad said.
