CN yesterday announced it achieved another monthly record in June, moving 2.7 million metric tons (MMT) of Canadian grain. In the first half of 2020, the Class I moved 15 MMT. That also represents a new all-time best quarter for CN with 8.15 MMT moved. June also was CN's fourth consecutive month of record grain movements, contributing to the railroad's record pace crop-year-to-date through June of 26.9 MMT versus the previous record of 26.5 MMT set last crop year. In addition, the Class I moved more than 1 MMT of Canadian grain from the Prairies crop year to date via container, which contributed to the railroad's record pace of Canadian grain intermodal shipments. "Despite all the difficulties we faced earlier this year, we are confident that the high volume of shipments experienced in June will continue until the end of the crop year and that CN and our partners of the supply chain will continue to deliver for the grain industry," said Allen Foster, CN's vice president of bulk, in a press release.
