SRY CEO Frank Butzelaar discusses
the important role Canada's shortline
railways play in the supply chain
By/Par Sarah MacFadyen

network. These smaller operators provide an essential link
between businesses in remote areas and customers across
the country and around the world. In fact, 20 per cent of
all freight rail traffic in Canada begins on shortlines, which
deliver many of the products Canadians rely on every day -

Des chemins de
fer d'intérêt vital
Frank Butzelaar, PDG de SRY, nous
parle du rôle crucial des chemins
de fer d'intérêt local dans la
chaîne d'approvisionnement
Les chemins de fer d'intérêt local font partie intégrante du
réseau ferroviaire canadien. Ils constituent un lien vital entre
les entreprises des régions éloignées et leurs clients ailleurs
au pays et de par le monde. Au Canada, 20 % de tous les
trains de marchandises entament leur trajet sur un CFIL. C'est
ainsi que les Canadiens peuvent se procurer de nombreux
produits (bois, céréales, produits manufacturés, etc.).
