  • After softer loadings at the beginning of the month due to slow deliveries from field to elevator, and delays around Labour Day, CP's grain supply chain is now fully charged. Empty hopper placements in the country the past two weeks have occurred at an all-time record pace
  • We are loading 5% above last year's pace crop-year over crop-year
  • Terminal space at the Port of Vancouver tightened last week due to gaps in vessel arrival at the port
  • Thunder Bay volumes remain very strong, above forecasted levels

Shippers are not expecting any major delays in deliveries, and there is ample supply of product due to strong harvest progress so far this crop year
  • From a loadings perspective, the past grain week was:

    Second-biggest loading week in the last three crop years
    37% bigger than grain Week 6
    7% higher crop-year-to-date than the same period last year
  • The rolling four-week average is now 20% higher than last year

  • While weather impacted space at some West Coast facilities, delaying unloading and slowing trains, overall the supply ​chain performed well in Week 16 in moving significant volume
  • CP and its supply chain partners continue to focus on increasing velocity and improving fluidity out of Vancouver​

  • Shipments are down 7% in the crop-year to date compared with the same period a year earlier due to the weather-delayed late harvest. The four-week rolling average was 8% lower than last year's record-setting pace
  • Persistent rain continues to impact space at some West Coast facilities, delaying unloading and slowing trains
  • Unloads and empty departures out of Vancouver improved week-over-week as CP and its supply chain partners continue to focus on increasing velocity and improving fluidity out of Vancouver​

​​​Week 14, October 30-November 5​137,351​295,949​11,849​855​71,779​517,783
  • Western Canadian grain and grain product shipments decreased 11% from the preceding week
  • Shipments are down 7% in the crop-year to date compared with the same period a year earlier due to the weather-delayed late harvest. The four-week rolling average was 1% lower than last year's record-setting pace. It is worth noting that Week 14 2015 was the best week of that crop year, by volume​
  • Persistent rain impacted space at some West Coast facilities, delaying unloading and slowing trains, leading some customers to delay loading in the country due to space concerns at the port
  • CP is focused on opportunities to increase velocity by more timely spotting at port terminals and empty car departures from the port to increase loadings in the country​
​​​Week 13, October 23-29​166,265327,271​10,768​2,772​77,122​584,198
  • ​Western Canadian grain and grain product shipments increased 14.2% from the preceding week
  • Shipments remain down 5% in the crop-year to date compared with the same period a year earlier due to the weather-delayed late harvest, but the four-week rolling average was 8.2% higher than last year's record-setting pace
  • To the end of Week 13 (October 29), CP is on pace for record loadings in the month of October​
  • Customers are reporting improving flows of grain being delivered into the supply chain at the country elevators
  • Poor weather (rain and wind) is impacting some West Coast port terminals; delaying the unloading of railcars and causing trains to be slowed into the port
  • An October 25 derailment in B.C. temporarily disrupted the supply chain​

​Week 12, October 16-22​119,313​302,939​13,058​1,685​74,347​511,342
  • ​Western Canadian grain and grain products shipments fell 17.4% from the preceding week
  • Shipments remain down 6% in the crop-year to date compared with the same period a year earlier due to the weather-delayed late harvest, but the four-week rolling average – which smooths out short-term volatility from season to season – is 4% higher than last year's record-setting pace
  • ​Customers are reporting an improved flow of grain into the elevators, which helped drive stronger loading in the Prairies, though product blending is introducing complexities into the supply chain
  • Poor weather (rain and wind) is causing space issues at some port terminals as they are unable to ship to vessel, which is delaying the unloading of some railcars
  • Sub-optimal execution by CP in releasing unloaded empty cars from the ports back into the supply chain weighed on overall performance 
Week 11, ​October 9-15​​​166,450​​​399,364​​6,6532,12644,837619,430
  • up 7.4% week-over-week, down 6% year-over-year to date
  • Despite a successful week, supply chain challenges this week included:​​

    ​Poor weather (snow, sleet, rain and cold) continued to delay harvest progress across the Canadian Prairies​

    Wind and rain at the Port of Vancouver impacted unloading and slowed the overall supply chain​
