October was the single best month ever for Western Canadian grain movement on CN’s network, the railroad said.
CN moved more than 3.2 million metric tons of grain from Western Canada. This exceeds the previous record set in October 2020 by more than 50,000 metric tons and follows an all-time record set for weekly movement earlier in the month.
“Our railroaders have once again surpassed expectations and delivered for the North American economy and I would like to thank them for their stellar work. Our people are the key to our success and I am proud that we continue to set records,” Rob Reilly, executive vice president and chief operating officer of CN, said in a news release.
