Restricted commodity items

​​​​​​​​Many of the loads CP transports includes many that are not properly loaded or secured or packaged that can damage our environment or the equipment. Because of these issues CP restricts or prohibits the movement of some commodities. The commodities that CP lists in various tariff items or in other customer communication that are considered to be embargoed, prohibited or restricted has been updated.

For further information, read our Guide to Products and Services Tariff 1 and its Appendix A Intermodal Safety Standards and Restricted Commodities
