but Rail Service Must Respond to Market Demand
Our reputation as a global supplier of food and feed products is at stake.
The market for Canadian grains, oilseeds and special crops is global. The domestic market is not large enough to consume the majority of Canada’s agricultural production; we must export. Our consistent high quality, assured safety, and trusted reputation sets the benchmark that our competitors strive for. Transporting our product from farm to customer requires a complex supply chain with multiple actors to operate in a timely, efficient and cost effective way. Unfortunately, Canada’s trading partners and competitors have taken notice of our transportation challenges. When grains and oilseeds are not delivered in full quantities on time, it means lost sales domestically and internationally. To safeguard Canada’s reputation into the future, we must ensure our global customers that our domestic supply chain can deliver on time, every time.
