Canadian Pacific Railway Cuts Delays, BNSF Still Behind

Canadian Pacific Railway says it has reduced a backlog of grain car orders, but BNSF Railway says it still has some late deliveries.

Canadian Pacific Railway says it finished last week with no grain shipments waiting in the U.S.

Ten weeks earlier it had a backlog of nearly 2,000 deliveries.

BNSF has cut late deliveries, but as of last week still had nearly 1,500 late deliveries with an average wait of nearly 17 days.

Grain elevators for months have struggled to get the rail cars they need to move harvested crops to market.
