More than Just a Railroad
Three coasts, 20,000 miles of track and over 23,000 railroaders - do the equation and you've got a full fledged transportation company.
CN is more than just a Railroad.

We Connect the Dots

We got our start in rail close to 100 years ago. Since then, we’ve evolved into a world-class transportation leader and the only transcontinental railway in North America. Our 20,000-mile network spans Canada and Mid-America, connecting three coasts: the Atlantic, the Pacific and the Gulf of Mexico. Wherever you find CN trains, you’ll find a host of service options to help you ship more; faster, further and more cost-effectively.

Tell us what you’re looking to ship and we’ll work together to find the right solution for you.


One container, three different modes of transportation.

Intermodal means versatility – anticipating that extra mile and adapting to it. The intermodal journey harnesses the global reach of vessels, the speed and efficiency of trains and the locality of trucking.

Shipping by rail is four times more fuel-efficient than trucking alone. Our Intermodal Container Services help shippers expand their door-to-door market reach with 21 strategically-placed intermodal terminals. Every link in the supply chain pulls together.


The best of both worlds

CN pairs the efficiency of rail with the added flexibility of trucking to better serve our local and regional customers. We accomplish this with solid trucking partners, working together every step of the way as one team - CNTL.

One of Canada’s largest full-load trucking companies CNTL has more than 1,050 owner operators, plus a fleet of 8,000 chassis and 8,000 containers.


Beyond land

Just because the road stops, it doesn’t mean you’ve reached the end. CN’s services extend beyond where trucks and track stop, offering our customers marine shipping in regions like the Great Lakes, Alaska and Newfoundland and Labrador. We partner with ports across our network, giving our customers global reach and tapping into an international network of shipping lines.

Helping Our Customers Win
As a key member of our customers' supply chain, we recognize that when they grow, we grow. CN works hard with our Supply Chain Partners to innovate, create and implement solutions that drive sustainable, long-term growth for our customers.
