Coal

​​​​​​​​​​​Shipping metallurgical and thermal coal around the clock.

To get your product where it needs to be, we offer unit train, block and single-car service to major facilities in Canada and bulk terminals in the U.S.

Canada

In Canada, coal moves west from customers such as Teck in southeastern British Columbia, travelling over the 1,330-metre-high Rogers Pass to Port Metro Vancouver for export throughout the world. We also move coal to steel manufacturers in the Great Lakes area. Our service is based on 24-hour, highly-efficient unit trains running through the mine-to-port transportation cycle.

U.S.

In the U.S., we receive coal from connecting railways that serve the thermal coal fields in the Powder River Basin in Montana and Wyoming. We deliver to power-generating facilities in the U.S. Midwest and also serve petroleum coke operations in Canada and the U.S. where the coal is used for power and aluminum production.
