MILWAUKEE — The Port of Milwaukee will begin handling a daily international intermodal train from the port of Vancouver, B.C., off Canadian Pacific, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has reported. The new contract, though Zim Integrated Shipping Services, aims to serve customers around Milwaukee and the northern Chicago region.
 
“I think truckers will support this because it’s easier for them to get in and out of Milwaukee,” said Sandi Siegel, the executive vice president of Milwaukee freight forwarder M.E. Dey & Co.
 
CP has long served the Milwaukee port’s intermodal yard, but the Zim contract should expand the business handled there.
 
“We think the Canadian Pacific train that goes into Milwaukee is severely underutilized,” said Dan Sutton, a Zim vice president.
