TMXU Program changes
In collaboration with our partners at NS, the KCSM origin pickup charge, assessed by Rez-1, will be reduced from a rate of $225 to $125 per KCSM empty outgate. KCS and NS will continue to evaluate the balance of the program closely and reserve the right to modify the pickup charge as needed.
