GLOBAL LOGISTICS PROFILE CN is your integrated supply chain partner. We are a leader in the North American transportation services industry, driven by innovation and collaboration. We offer complete shipping solutions, including rail, intermodal, trucking, freight forwarding, warehousing and distribution. Whether you're shipping across CN's rail network of more than 20,000 miles, globally through the many ports we service on three coasts, or leveraging well over 20 strategically located intermodal terminals across our network, we connect you with the people that matter most: your customers. CN has the only rail network that touches three coasts in North America, accessing the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts. Our intermodal facilities give you easy access to over 75 percent of the U.S. markets and all Canadian markets. At CN, we work together with our customers to ensure their products get to market as efficiently as possible. We recognize that when they grow, we grow. So we work hard with our supply chain partners to innovate, create and implement solutions that seek to drive sustainable, long-term growth for our customers. We've put in place ground-breaking service level agreements to open communication between CN and our port partners. These agreements allow us to improve your total supply chain from vessel to rail, trucking, warehousing, distribution and everything in between. In 2015, CN signed memorandums of understanding with the Port of New Orleans and Alabama State Port Authorities, two U.S. Gulf ports. Aligning ourselves with these supply chain partners ensures our customers have competitive options for moving cargo across CN's U.S. network. Our network is designed for fluidity, getting cargo to America's Heartland – Chicago and the Midwest – quickly and efficiently. Port of Mobile, Alabama, and Port of New Orleans are home to new intermodal container transfer facilities, creating seamless connections for our customers through this key gateway, proximal to the newly expanded Panama Canal. CN plays a key role in fostering the prosperity of the North American markets we serve and is therefore a true backbone of the economy, transporting approximately C$250 billion worth of goods annually. CN is an indispensable transportation supplier for many key sectors in North America, from grain and forest products to industrial products and the automotive sector, moving raw materials, intermediate goods and finished products to market. With our extended reach to the markets and manufacturers of Asia and the rest of the world, CN is also a key gateway for North America's participation in the global economy, helping you win in the markets where you compete.
