MONTREAL, Que. — Canadian National (CN) recently launched the Montreal Intermodal Terminal at Taschereau Yard (MITT), and promises the new terminal will be a more efficient transportation system.
The MITT, a $47 million investment, will equip CN to expand its fast-growing intermodal business. Because intermodal traffic, the transportation of containers and truck trailers by rail, is a major part of CN’s market share and revenue growth plans, they are finding ways to conduct a more customer-oriented and efficient business.
A fundamental feature of MITT is Speed Gate, CN Intermodal’s new automated gate system that gives truckers faster terminal access through automated self-serve gate stands and also ensures high levels of security.
Last year, CN moved more than 1.1 million intermodal units across North America. With 1,500 units moved from the Taschereau yard every day by rail and truck, the new terminal is already a very busy hub.
