Canadian Pacific Railway Limited, through its subsidiaries, operates a transcontinental railway in Canada and the United States (U.S.). The company provides logistics and supply chain expertise. The company provides rail and intermodal transportation services through a network of approximately 14,400 miles, serving the principal business centers of Canada from Montreal, Quebec, to Vancouver, British Columbia (B.C.), and the U.S. Northeast and Midwest regions. Its railway feeds directly into the U.S. heartland from the East and West coasts. Agreements with other carriers extend the company’s market reach east of Montreal in Canada, throughout the U.S. and into Mexico. The company transports bulk commodities, merchandise freight, and intermodal traffic. Bulk commodities include grain, coal, fertilizers, and sulphur. Merchandise freight consists of finished vehicles and automotive parts, as well as forest and industrial and consumer products. Intermodal traffic consists primarily of time-sensitive retail goods in overseas containers that could be transported by train, ship, and truck; and in domestic containers and trailers that could be moved by train and truck. The company owns approximately 10,600 miles of track. An additional 3,800 miles of track are owned jointly, leased or operated under trackage rights. Of the total mileage operated, approximately 6,000 miles are located in western Canada, 2,200 miles in eastern Canada, 5,100 miles in the U.S. Midwest, and 1,100 miles in the U.S. Northeast. Its business is based on funnelling railway traffic from feeder lines and connectors, including secondary and branch lines, onto its high-density mainline railway network. The company has extended its network reach by establishing alliances and connections with other major Class I railways in North America, which allow the company to provide competitive services and access to markets across North America beyond its own rail network. It also provides service to markets in Europe and the Pacific Rim through direct access to the Port of Montreal and the Port Metro Vancouver in Vancouver, B.C., respectively. The company’s network accesses the U.S. market directly through three wholly owned subsidiaries, such as Soo Line Railroad Company (Soo Line), a Class I railway operating in the U.S. Midwest; Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern Railroad Corporation (DM&E), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Soo Line, which operates in the U.S. Midwest; and the Delaware and Hudson Railway Company, Inc., which operates between eastern Canada and major U.S. Northeast markets, including New York City, New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Washington, D.C. Network and Right-of-Way The company’s 14,400-mile network extends from the Port Metro Vancouver on Canada’s Pacific Coast to the Port of Montreal in eastern Canada, and to the U.S. industrial centers of Chicago; Detroit, Michigan; Newark, New Jersey; and Buffalo, New York; Kansas City, Missouri; and Minneapolis, Minnesota. The company’s network includes four primary corridors, such as Western, Eastern, Central, and the Northeast U.S. The Western Corridor: Vancouver-Thunder Bay The Western Corridor links Vancouver with Thunder Bay, Ontario, which is the western Canadian terminus of the company’s Eastern corridor. With service through Calgary, Alberta the Western Corridor is a primary part of its routes between Vancouver and the U.S. Midwest, and between Vancouver and Eastern Canada. The Western Corridor provides access to the Port of Thunder Bay, Canada’s primary Great Lakes bulk terminal. Products: The Western Corridor is the company’s primary route for bulk and resource products traffic from western Canada to the Port Metro Vancouver for export. It also handles various international intermodal containers and domestic general merchandise traffic. Feeder Lines: The company supports its Western Corridor with four feeder lines, such as the ‘Coal Route’, which links southeastern B.C. coal deposits to the Western Corridor and to coal terminals at the Port Metro Vancouver; the ‘Edmonton-Calgary Route’, which provides rail access to Alberta’s Industrial Heartland in addition to the p
