First trains arrive at Canadian National's Calgary intermodal terminal

  16.01.2013    

Canadian National Railway (CN) has announced the arrival of its first trains to be serviced at the new intermodal terminal the new Calgary Logistics Park, according to the Shipping Gazette. 
"Our logistics park operation will provide seamless transportation solutions to rail customers moving products and commodities into and out of Calgary - one of the fastest growing regional markets in North America," said CN vice president Jean-Jacques Ruest.
CN's C$200 million (US$203.3 million) facility is accessible to Prince Rupert and Vancouver ports and linked to major cities across Canada and into mid-America, also providing the province of Alberta with ample export and import capacity, he said.
The new facility that has access to Stoney Trail, the Trans Canada Highway and other major roadways, is situated on Twp Road 250/McKnight Boulevard and is 10 kilometres from Calgary International Airport.
The new intermodal terminal, relocated from the Sarcee Yard in southeast Calgary, has 30 per cent more capacity than the existing Calgary intermodal terminal and space for further expansion. It also has four automated in-gates and three automated out-gates to keep truck turnaround times in the terminal to below 45 minutes; a container yard for the storage of international containers; and specialised equipment for temperature-controlled products.
The logistics park has space to accommodate 232,257 square metres of warehouse distribution facilities, including a rail-to-truck transload operation and a new autoport facility to serve the regional finished vehicles market.
"The Calgary Logistics Park will help CN to reduce transportation costs of its customers through highly efficient materials handling, transportation and distribution processes," said Mr Ruest.
