Carload network bi-weekly update – Week of November 13, 2023

November 15, 2023

Service highlights this week
CPKC expects operating conditions to remain seasonal across our network this week. 

We will continue to provide updates should conditions change with regard to potential network impacts.

As we approach winter, it is imperative your walking areas and track are safe and free of debris. Sanding or cleaning away snow or ice before our crews’ arrival is one of the ways the effects of poor winter weather can be mitigated. 

The CPKC Customer Safety Handbook provides clear direction on safe rail operations and can help to educate your employees on the potential hazards on and around tracks. Please click here to access the CPKC Customer Safety Handbook.

Asset forecast this week 
Demand is balanced across the CPKC fleets. We encourage customers to load and release equipment in a timely manner to assist with car velocity on the network.
