Canadian Pacific Logistics boosts energy supply chain
Canadian Pacific Logistics Solutions (CPLS) has developed a new wind energy supply chain connecting manufacturers in Quebec and Florida with a new clean energy transload facility in upper New York State. CPLS is an industry leader in wind energy logistics.
“CPLS has demonstrated competence and expertise in the movement of these super-sized dimensional wind energy components,” said Stephen Whitney, VP Market Development. “Our end-to-end logistics solution creates value and drives service to new levels for these specialized customers.”
