CPKC Announces Multi-Year Agreement with Schneider

Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC) today announced a new multi-year agreement with Schneider National Inc., a premier multimodal provider of transportation, intermodal and logistics services, to provide new single-line intermodal transportation service on CPKC’s north-south corridor connecting the United States and Mexico.

Schneider will transition their Mexico-U.S. traffic to CPKC starting in mid-May and will serve as an anchor domestic intermodal customer on CPKC’s north–south flagship intermodal service between Chicago and all major destinations in Mexico.

Schneider’s growing customer base will be able to leverage CPKC’s broad network of rail lines and terminals. These services, supported by Schneider’s drayage capabilities and expertise in the U.S. and Mexico, will create service reliability in lanes that until now lacked single-line, truck-competitive intermodal options.

CPKC’s International Railroad Bridge over the Rio Grande River at the U.S.-Mexico border at Laredo, Texas, offers a reliable alternative to congested highway ports of entry. A second span to expand the bridge’s capacity and further increase the efficiency of cross-border train movements is currently under construction and expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
