CN Rail has outlined steps to ramp up grain movement as quickly as possible for Saskatchewan farmers.
The transportation company’s Director of Grain Marketing, David Przednowek says February was a rather poor month for grain movement, averaging just 3400 hopper cars per week.
But he says additional locomotives and staff has been added to speed up grain shipments to 5000 hoppers car by the late stages of March.
“That includes temporarily restricting the flow of rail cars of commodities,” said Przednowek. “Except grain into the Edmonton-Winnipeg corridor.”
