February 19, 2014: CN and CP Will Issue Surcharges on Older Tank Cars for Crude Oil

Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways have both announced this week that they will be issuing surcharges for any crude oil tank car which does not meet the AAR CPC 1232 (pre-October 2011). This is a special standard which applies specifically to tank cars carrying crude oil and 3 other commodities.

CP Rail will add a $325 “general service tank car safety surcharge” on each car of crude that is shipped in any container other than the CPC 1232 model, effective March 14, 2014.
