Asian Shippers and Carriers to Benefit from Canadian Pacific - KCS Merger
Canadian Pacific (CP) and Kansas City Southern (KCS) announced their intent to combine, creating the first Class 1 railroad that spans all of North America, connecting the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.
For Asian shippers, the connections would provide increased connectivity seamlessly from Vancouver to Mexico and for carriers transiting the Panama Canal provide direct access to Houston and New Orleans.
Shippers of all sizes would benefit from:
New single-line haul offerings delivering dramatically expanded market reach and new competitive transportation options.
Enhanced service offerings, lower transit times, and direct access to premier ports on the U.S. Gulf, Atlantic and Pacific coasts, which improve efficiency and asset utilization.
Expanded and alternative network routes that provide more options and improved access to, and around, Chicago.
Unrivalled safety record and commitment to operational efficiency and seamless integration of the two systems without service disruption.
No elimination of any existing competitive routing options – competition will only be enhanced.
