Ceremonial Ribbon Cutting to immediately follow 

March 28, 2017, saw the opening of the first rail-served intermodal container ramp in the Twin Ports–an alliance between CN and Duluth Cargo Connect, a working partnership of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority and Lake Superior Warehousing. The CN Duluth Intermodal Terminal instantly connected this region to containerized imports and exports via a rail network that spans the continent, providing direct service to East, West and Gulf Coast ports. These connections offer our regional customers lower cost, more efficient supply chain options for international trade—moving containerized cargo in/out of the heartland of North America. It is only fitting, as we approach our six-month mark of operations that an official ribbon-cutting ceremony be held to appropriately thank those colleagues, companies and community leaders who believed in our vision and have worked so hard to make it a success.
