Grain Performance for 2017 -18 crop year

Working in close collaboration with Canadian government officials, CP has developed a system that allows for open and transparent sharing of information to government on its grain movements. 

In addition to the information being shared with Transport Canada, CP voluntarily publishes a weekly supply chain scorecard. The scorecard outlines CP's performance for the previous grain week and includes, when necessary, detailed information on any internal or external factors affecting grain movement. The scorecard includes movements of Western Canadian grain and grain products consistent with those required by the minimum mandate legislation of 2013-14, as well as movements of soybeans and other non-regulated principal field crops.

  • The aftermath of last week’s slides in British Columbia continued to affect volumes in Week 18. However, overall volumes remain strong, and throughput rose late in the week as operations normalized. Meanwhile, we are seeing very strong volumes building for Thunder Bay terminals
  • Shipments decreased by 13% from the previous week
  • Shipment variance is 4% higher crop-year to date compared with the same period last year
  • Rolling four-week average is 1% higher versus last year

  • Overall, a much stronger week than Week 16 as the network continued to recover from the B.C. outage. This week's performance would have been even better if not for landslides in the Fraser Valley, which cut off all rail traffic and reduced car supply to the port
  • Shipments increased by 25% from the previous week
  • Shipment variance is 4% higher crop-year to date compared with the same period last year
  • Rolling four-week average is 3%  higher versus last year
