dangerous goods a top priority. CN has an unwavering commitment to
safety and works closely with its customers to deliver responsibly.

at destination without a release caused by an accident."

load freight cars with dangerous goods and meet strict standards for
the safe handling and shipment of regulated products. The winners must
