Commodity Rail Line
The Canadian National Railway follows the Highway 16 corridor from Prince George to Prince Rupert. There are siding access points throughout the region, which service the forest industry. Currently CN Rail is upgrading the rail line to accommodate the increase in traffic due to goods being shipped to Asia. Prince George is the regional trading centre for Northern BC, where CN Rails Intermodal Terminal is located. The Intermodal terminal is designed to support customers shipping to and from Asia through the Port of Prince Rupert.
