Intercontinental North American Hub



CN Rail is a working partner with the City of Prince Rupert in realizing greater growth within the region as well across North America. With CN's connections to distribution hubs throughout the Midwest as far as  the Gulf of Mexico, Prince Rupert’s strategic location enables the movement of cargo to all of North  America's biggest population centres. 


Trains traveling from Prince Rupert take advantage of the gentlest grade through the Rocky Mountains compared to any other West Coast port. Combined with our lack of urban congestion, that means high-speed performance that also burns less fuel.
