Speed, Equipment and Capacity!

CN offers one of the largest fleets of high-capacity, 100-ton railcars and intermodal containers, combined with great service and more. This is the ideal supply chain solution.

Our Competitive Advantage

Competitive Pricing

Rail is the most cost-effective way to ship.  In tough economic times, you need to make the most of every transportation dollar.  We offer door to door rates for your preferred destinations. As a bonus, railcars can carry up to two to three times more forest products than trucks! For smaller orders or faster delivery times our intermodal services are there for you.

Extended Reach

We offer you access to a unique three coast network, reload centers & strategically located intermodal terminals to get your wood products to markets in Asia, North-America, Mexico and beyond.  We can efficiently extend your market reach.


Get your money’s worth and more!

Not only are we a green transportation alternative by nature, we can also provide amazing services to help you grow your business. Try our customs brokerage service — it is well known for its reliability and speedy clearance.

Shipping to Mexico
