CN NORTH AMERICA: INSULATED CONTAINERS TEMPERATURE-CONTROL IN HOT DEMAND

    MONTREAL, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to hot demand for temperature-controlled service, CN will invest $4.5 million in new insulated containers, scheduled to enter service in November.  They will keep Canada-bound California oranges and U.S.-bound Canadian beer above the freezing point during winter months.  CN's latest purchase of 100 containers and nosemounts will bring the CN temperature-controlled fleet to more than 1,000.
    "Cargoes as diverse as dairy products, intravenous medicine solutions, batteries and baby food will all be shielded from temperature extremes by our new investment," says Al Gillies, vice-president, Intermodal, CN North America.  "Demand is growing faster than we had capacity.  The new temperature-controlled containers will put us in a better position to take advantage of this."
    Mr. Gillies says that the railway is pleased with strength of customer enthusiasm for its new service.  Most manufacturers have until now relied exclusively on highway carriers to carry time-and temperature-sensitive shipments.
