View From the Top: A Conversation With Canadian National Railway CEO Jean-Jacques Ruest

Tuesday, 2 March

3:45 pm - 4:15 pm (EST) / 02/mar/2021 08:45 pm - 02/mar/2021 09:15 pm
A surge of North American imports from Asia and low ocean reliability that has dipped as low as 30 percent has challenged Canadian National Railway’s capacity and displaced empty containers. Yet, the railroad has adapted in the short term and is advancing its strategy to inject itself deeper into the consumer supply chain. Jean-Jacques Ruest, the railroad’s CEO, and president, will explain how creating “ecosystems” for international and domestic supply chains, and providing targeted investments in port gateways, inland hubs, and digitalization, is laying the groundwork to pivot toward the new level of optimization of the rail segment of the supply chain.
