WINNIPEG, Man. – Canadian National (CN) Railway has opened a new $16 million intermodal interminal at Symington Yard on the east side of Winnipeg.

The new location replaces the terminal that was previously operated in south Winnipeg. It has been handling traffic since the end of July.

“The new Winnipeg Intermodal Terminal is a more efficient, customer-friendly facility than the one it replaces,” Keith Creel, CN senior vice-president Western Canada region, said at the ceremony. “Intermodal traffic is CN’s fastest-growing business segment, and this new facility will enable CN to meet the growing needs of our Winnipeg customers.”

The facility can transfer 100,000 containers between trucks and trains per year, which is a 20 per cent increase over the former terminal.
