Effective immediately Canadian Pacific will Collect Railroad Storage Charges Directly from the IMCs

18 June 2014

Effective immediately CP will collect railroad storage charges directly from the IMCs instead of billing RBC and RBC then having to bill back the IMCs.  This will be a faster and more efficient method of settling railroad storage. If an IMC does not have credit with CP, CP's credit card form must be completed and sent to International COG prior to driver arriving at the terminal as CP’s terminals do not process any storage transactions. Select here for CP's credit card form. Listed below is CP's procedure and the link to get set up with credit.

If you do not currently have credit with CP, attached is the link to CP' credit application http://www.cpr.ca/en/customer-centre/credit-application/Pages/default.aspx.

When the credit application has been approved or if they have existing credit they can request access in Customer Station to 'Add Storage Guarantee' under REQUEST TOOLS > INTERMODAL TOOLS. Once this request has been approved by the company Central Manager it will come to the eB Support work list to set up access in CP's system.

When the user has access through Customer Station these are the steps to Guarantee Storage.

  1. Login to Intermodal Tools, click on Shipment Management and enter the container to trace.
  2. Go down where it says Additional Output and click on the box next to Last Free Day and Storage Guarantee then click Run.
  3. It should take you to Track & Trace screen where under the Storage Guarantee column you should see Guarantee in red text, click on it.
  4. The next page is Track and Trace: Storage Charges Calculator, enter the pickup date and time then hit OK.
  5. This should take you to the Load Tracing: Storage Charges Calculation where you will be prompted to enter your Guarantee Number, after you acknowledge CP’s Term and Condition click on the Guarantee button.
  6. The confirmation screen will show up and you can click Close once you are satisfied.
  7. Tracing the shipment again will now display the guarantee number under the Storage Guarantee.

Listed below are the current CP free time/charges.
