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 transports bulk commodities, merchandise freight and intermodal traffic. The company owns approximately 9,900 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 5,800 miles are located in western Canada, 2,300 miles in eastern Canada, 4,500 miles in the U.S. Midwest and 1,100 miles in the U.S. Northeast. The company’s business is based on funnelling railway traffic from feeder lines and connectors, including secondary and branch lines, onto the company’s 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 services and access to markets across North America beyond the company’s own rail network. The company 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, British Columbia (B.C.), respectively. The company’s network accesses the U.S. market directly through three wholly owned subsidiaries, including 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. (D&H), 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 13,700-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 consists of four primary corridors: Western, Eastern, Central and the Northeast U.S. The Western Corridor: Vancouver to 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 major part of the company’s 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. The company also handles significant volumes of international intermodal containers and domestic general merchandise traffic. Feeder Lines: The company supports its Western Corridor with four significant feeder lines: 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 petrochemical facilities in central Alberta; the Pacific CanAm Route, which connects Calgary and Medicine Hat, Alberta, with Pacific Northwest rail routes at Kingsgate, B.C. through the Crowsnest Pass; and the North Main Line Route that provides rail service to customers between Portage La Prairie, Manitoba and Wetaskiwin, Alberta, including intermediate points Yorkton and Saskatoon in Saskatchewan. This line is major collector of Canadian grain and fertilizer, serving the potash mines located east and west of Saskatoon and many high-throughput grain elevator, processing and crude facilities. In addition, this line provides direct access to refining and upgrading facilities at Lloydminster, Alberta and western Canada’s major pipeline terminal at Hardisty, Alberta.
