First Hapag-Lloyd branded train in Canada

The railway transport provider Canadian Pacific (CP) has dedicated a special locomotive to Hapag-Lloyd to commemorate their long-standing partnership.

It is the first time in its 140-year history that the Canadian railway company repainted one of its locomotives in the colours of a customer.

In this way, CP aims to honour the German carrier as its most important container service customer and to commemorate the joint efforts to launch the service in Port Saint John, New Brunswick in Eastern Canada.

The locomotive will now travel throughout Canada, displaying Hapag-Lloyd's branding, according to a statement.

"We have a great partnership with Canadian Pacific and their team," commented Uffe Ostergaard, president of Hapag-Lloyd in North America, who attended the formal ceremony that took place back in November 2021.

"It was a privilege to spend time with the train driver who runs this locomotive and also to get such a close look at the operations of our all-important domestic business," added Ostergaard.
