Canadian National (CN) has opened a new intermodal terminal at Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
The terminal, located only 100 miles east of Minneapolis/St. Paul, offers Wisconsin and Minnesota customers new supply chain options to ship and receive goods in containers.
"This terminal gives companies in the Upper Midwest direct and efficient single-rail-line access to new North American and global markets via our continental network as well as the ports we serve on the Pacific, Atlantic and Gulf coasts," said Jean-Jacques Ruest, CN executive vice-president and chief marketing officer.
The terminal offers twice weekly train services with fifth morning availability from the west coast for intermodal containers. Located on 8.5 acres of land at CN's Chippewa Falls Yard, the terminal features a 2,500 ft long intermodal loading and unloading track plus an onsite grain transfer facility.
Since 2001, when CN acquired Wisconsin Central Ltd, the company has invested more than $500m in rail infrastructure improvements across the state.
