MONTREAL, Feb. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CN (TSX: CNR) (NYSE: CNI) announced that it will be forced to shut down significant parts of its Canadian network imminently unless the blockades on its rail lines are removed.
A public statement from the individuals blocking the lines explained that their actions are in solidarity with the pipeline opposition movement and are unrelated to CN’s activities.
It is with great pride that we are pleased to announce that Groupe Levasse Inc. and Modal Logistique Inc., a Canadian customs broker, are joining forces to unite their joint expertise.
This strategic partnership is part of the objective of offering all the services of an international freight forwarder under one roof. The arrival of the Modal Logistics team in our group will allow us to better support you in the challenges of managing your supply chain.
This transaction also allows us to rely on the expertise of Mr. Alexandre Legault, who will act as Director of Customs Brokerage. Mr. Legault holds a diploma at HEC Montréal in Operations Management and International Affairs as well as an accreditation as a Canadian Customs Broker. He is also a teacher at Collège Lionel-Groulx in transportation logistics and will certainly be an asset to our clientele as well as to our staff.
We are confident that this acquisition will enable us to maintain the high level of service that we set for all our customers and will allow us to be in continuity with our corporate values so dear to our eyes : innovation, creativity, service and teamwork.
