Canada intermodal volume growth outpaces US gains
from Journal of Commerce
Canadian intermodal volume growth continues to outpace U.S. intermodal traffic gains, potentially reflecting shippers' diverting of shipments to western Canadian ports to avoid potential U.S. West Coast labor disruptions. Canadian intermodal volume rose 7.1 percent year-over-year in the first 39 weeks of this year, while U.S. intermodal traffic expanded 5.5 percent in the same period, according to the Association of American Railroads. For the first 39 weeks of 2014, North American intermodal volumes have consistently registered weekly year-over-year gains of 5.8 percent to 5.9 percent.
