As Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (CP) continues to develop its total transportation product, the company launched a new service offering called CP TempPro™, for customers shipping perishable products. CP TempPro™ ensures that customers’ products are transported in a reliable, fuel-efficient temperature-controlled environment.
In 2017, CP announced the purchase of 41 gensets to better serve its international customers. These gensets also support the new reefer domestic repositioning program (reefer DRP), which creates new shipping options for CP’s domestic customers and provides improved round trip economics for its international shippers. In 2018, CP will invest in over 400 new 53’ reefers to support the growing temperature-control market. CP will also be the first to offer Thermo King’s SLXi-DRC model which features a slimmer design, allowing for two additional pallet positions in a shipment. The SLXi-DRC also utilizes a greener refrigerant, R-452A, which decreases global warming potential over its predecessor, the R-404A. In addition, CP is purchasing over 350 53’ heater units. Combined, these investments will support CP TempPro™.
“CP is committed to giving its customers everything they need as one total transportation product, which is why CP TempPro™ is a great addition to our roster of services,” said Jonathan Wahba, Vice-President, Sales and Marketing, Intermodal and Automotive. “
