    Mexico Intermodal: One Year Later

    It’s been more than a year since the intermodal landscape in Mexico changed with the entrance of Canadian Pacific, now known as CPKC. Between CPKC, the Falcon Premium, and the BNSF-Ferromex partnership, there are several viable ways to route cargo between Mexico, Canada, and the US. Railroads aren’t only targeting freight to the US Midwest, but also the US Southeast and to Canada. This session will examine how progress has gone so far in growing Mexico intermodal freight, provide an update on services to the US Southeast and Canada, and discuss how to convince truckload shippers to consider using rail for some of their cross-border freight.
