Brandon, MB—June 20, 2023— Cando Rail & Terminals, a leading provider of first and last mile rail service and terminal infrastructure, has successfully completed the expansion of its Cando Sarnia Terminal. Cando purchased the existing rail terminal in the spring of 2021. The recently completed expansion increases railcar capacity from 85 spots to approximately 550 spots. Cando Sarnia Terminal provides additional rail capacity to southern Ontario and expands Cando’s national network.

Cando Sarnia Terminal is located on approximately 90 acres in the Sarnia Chemical Valley region and is directly serviced by CN off the CN St. Clair industrial spur. The multi-purpose terminal offers services seven days per week for railcar staging for short or long-term, loaded or empty railcars, as well as transloading numerous products to or from railcars. The terminal also has a two-track railcar repair shop and two-track railcar wash facility.

Cando is holding an official grand opening of Cando Sarnia Terminal this week with customers, contractors, and local stakeholders touring the site.

Based in Brandon, Man., Cando has successfully grown from a small rail salvage company in 1978 to a leading international service provider of first and last mile rail service and terminal infrastructure.
