Visiting a CN Intermodal Terminal Just Got Easier

Introducing ModalPass, a new app for our trucking partners visiting CN terminals

For CN, technology is a core value driver. By deploying technology across our operations, CN continues to create value and improve efficiency, reliability, and safety for our team, our supply chain partners, and our customers. An example of this is the new GE ModalPass mobile app aimed at making visiting CN intermodal terminals faster and easier for our trucking partners.

With this new convenient app, drivers can save valuable time at the gate and navigate CN Intermodal terminals more efficiently.

The app allows drivers to:

  • Know that their gate entry is good before arriving at the terminal
  • Avoid booking, waybilling, and reservation delays
  • Complete gate entry from the comfort of their cab
  • Store and share electronic gate receipts
  • Check if their container is available
  • Receive valuable safety and information notifications from CN terminals

Currently available at CN terminals in Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto, with plans to expand, the ModalPass app is one of many ways that CN is using technology to enhance our services and operations.
