CP sets date for combination with KCS
(Posted on 28/03/23)
Canadian Pacific has said that, on 14 April, 2023, it will exercise the authority granted by the U.S. Surface Transportation Board’s (“STB”) on 15 March final decision and combine with Kansas City Southern (“KCS”) to create Canadian Pacific Kansas City (“CPKC”), the first and only single-line railway connecting the U.S., Mexico and Canada. CP also announced the executive leadership team that will lead CPKC.
“Our new combined railroad will create a truly unique single-line network connecting three nations and instantly injecting new competition into the North American rail industry when our supply chains have never needed it more,” said Keith Creel, CP President and CEO. “The public, environmental, competitive and safety benefits of this historic combination, clearly recognized by the U.S. Surface Transportation Board, are extraordinary for our employees, communities, rail customers and the North American economy.
“Under the leadership of the exceptional group of railroaders we announce, CPKC will bring new options to rail customers while increasing safety, improving service and spurring new investment in our railroad network,” Mr. Creel added. “Together, all these benefits will create jobs and drive economic growth in North America.
“We acknowledge the thorough and thoughtful consideration put into the STB’s final decision, including the conditions it imposes in order to assure that the transaction’s public benefits are realized and any potential harms are avoided. We intend to participate cooperatively and proactively to assist the STB during its oversight process and will honor the conditions the STB has imposed,” Mr. Creel said.
As previously announced, Mr. Creel will become President and CEO of CPKC.
