CN Duluth Intermodal Terminal 

Situated on our Clure Public Marine Terminal, the new CN Duluth Intermodal Terminal instantly connects the region to containerized imports and exports via a high-capacity rail network that spans the continent, providing direct service to and from the East, West and Gulf Coast ports.

“For us, its about our ability to move cargo quicker. It’s much more convenient than the Twin Cities and has warehousing capacity, too. In some cases, we expect to see up to a third in freight cost savings by utilizing the new CN Intermodal Terminal in Duluth. Quite honestly, it is just a lot less expensive for us to ship through Duluth.”
