“This quarter, we saw revenue growth across every line of business, strong operating metrics, and our best-ever second-quarter performance from a workload perspective, as measured by gross ton-miles,” said CP President and CEO Keith Creel. “As has been proven time and again, our operating model can perform well in all economic conditions, and we will remain disciplined in controlling our costs and doing what we said we would do. Our strategy for sustainable, profitable growth is working, and we look forward to a strong finish to 2019. I commend the team for this record second-quarter performance. These results demonstrate the strength of precision scheduled railroading and are a testament to our collective commitment to deliver for our customers and the broader economy.”
