Unlike the USA, where piggyback dominates the domestic intermodal scene, CP Rail foresees containers taking the lead as more cranes are installed and different box sizes become available. CP is also in the shipping and road haulage business which permits cooperation between modes in a way which is legally impossible in the USA. This gives the Canadians a distinct advantage, not only in developing intermodal domestic freight, but also as a landbridge for maritime containers moving between the Far East and Europe as well as to the US midwest.
