Edmonton, Alta. — Canadian National’s new Edmonton intermodal terminal, located on 370 acres adjacent to the transcontinental main line, was recently inaugurated.
The new location will provide truckers with easy access to and from the Yellowhead Trail providing passage to key cities throughout northern Alberta.
