Schneider has begun to provide Mexico to upper Midwest intermodal service on the newly formed CPKC
Service Began May 2023
Schneider recently announced that is now offering customers intermodal service on the newly merged Canadian Pacific Kansas City, which connects the upper Midwest of the United States and Mexico.
Schneider is a strategic intermodal carrier on CPKC’s north-south flagship intermodal service between Chicago and all major points in Mexico.
As Schneider helps to grow intermodal offerings between the U.S. and Mexico, it will create more sustainable solutions for shippers.
This service adds to the carrier’s already impressive portfolio of capabilities and shipping options — Truckload, Regional, Brokerage, Power Only and more — available to solve its customers’ unique supply chain challenges.
Schneider has one of the largest intermodal fleets in North America, with over 28,000 containers and plans to double the company’s intermodal size by 2030.
Schneider began moving certain freight on CPKC’s railway in mid-May, 2023. This service will offer faster transit between Mexico and U.S. points, and will be the only way to get to Mexico without a handoff.
Benefits of Schneider’s new Mexico to upper Midwest intermodal service with CPKC
This intermodal service developed as a result of the rise in nearshoring, which the CPKC sees as a lifetime opportunity. The organization has invested heavily in their cross-border network and the Laredo Bridge.
