The Best of Both Worlds

CN pairs the efficiency of rail with the added flexibility of trucking to better serve our local and regional customers. We accomplish this with solid trucking partners, working together every step of the way as one team - CNTL.

One of Canada’s largest full-load trucking companies CNTL has more than 1,050 owner operators, plus a fleet of 8,000 chassis and 8,000 containers.

Quick, Efficient, Cohesive

We deliver more than 1,300 loads a day, safely and on time; with a 90% on-time delivery track record. Our Speed Gate system reduces in-gate and out-gate times, giving recognized trucking partners quick access to CN’s strategically located Intermodal Terminals.
