Need to Get Goods to Market in Atlantic Canada? Here’s a Better Option

Did you know that CN, in partnership with our port operator PSA Halifax, offers daily direct rail service between Port of Halifax, NS and Moncton, NB? This service, complemented by CN’s intermodal ramp in Moncton helps our customers reduce the highway traffic in the Atlantic region for a more sustainable transportation solution at a competitive cost.

Best of all, the service provides a more fluid transport solution in and out of the Halifax gateway that avoids congestion in the city center. This reduces container traffic in downtown Halifax and offers you fast and consistent access to and from overseas markets and Atlantic Canada.
