Companies receiving the award transported at least 500 carloads of hazardous materials (non-intermodal) in 2019 with zero Non-Accidental Release (NAR) incidents.

A hazardous materials NAR is the unintentional release of a hazardous material while in transportation, including loading and unloading while in railroad possession that is not caused by a derailment, collision or other rail-related accident.

“Safety is a core foundation of everything we do at CP,” said Coby Bullard, Vice-President Sales and Marketing, Merchandise and Energy, Chemicals and Plastics. “Encouraging and rewarding safe behaviour across every aspect of our business helps to ensure that our employees and our communities stay safe during the transport of essential products. CP’s customers play a critical role in safely shipping freight on our rail network. I’m proud to serve customers who share our commitment to operating safely. On behalf of CP, congratulations to each of the Safe Shipper Award recipients for 2019.”
