CN Valleyfield Intermodal Terminal & Mississauga Intermodal Service Center - Updates

Toronto-destined cargo over CN’s Mississauga Intermodal Service Center (MISC)


Update to past advisory: CN Opens Additional Relief Container Yard 


CN continues to be successful with their efforts to decongest the ports. However, there is still a large number of import containers dwelling at the CN Toronto terminals.  
In consultation with Federal Government agencies, CN will be handling some Toronto-destined cargo over their Mississauga Intermodal Service Center (MISC) (Port 0495/sub-location 5974). 
The goal is to increase the volume of imports that can depart the ports thereby reducing the time container ships are anchored in Canadian ports. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is participating in this solution and has established processes to be followed. 
CN will pre-identify containers once they depart a port in Western Canada and will notify their immediate customers of the change within 24 hours of train departure. While this initiative targets containers moving from ports in Western Canada only, this may extend to ports in Eastern Canada as well, should the need arise. 


Please see CN’s Customs Bulletin #68 for more information and FAQs.
