Grain Supply Chain
Moving more Canadian grain under commercial agreements
CN has negotiated innovative commercial agreements with the majority of our grain customers that add visibility to the supply chain, help with advance planning and mitigate risk on both sides. They incorporate volume commitments from the shippers in exchange for guaranteed car supply from CN, with reciprocal penalties for non-compliance. This shift in approach, along with continued strong execution in the field, has led to increased grain shipment volumes and sets the stage for more growth in the future.
