DARTMOUTH, Nova Scotia — Canadian National is sponsoring transportation of a historic military tank across Canada a process that began Wednesday with loading of the tank onto a railcar at the CN yard in Dartmouth. It will be moved to British Columbia “in the coming weeks,” according to a CN press release.

The Centurion tank is the last of its kind known to have seen front-line action during the Korean War. CN’s release says the tank will be moved in a multimodal supply chain partnership also involving A.W. Liel Cranes & Equipment; John Hunter Trucking Co.; Total Transport & Rigging, and Quiring Towing and Recovery.

“We have a proud and strong history of moving Canadian military equipment and soldiers,” Keith Reardon, senior vice-president, consumer product supply chain, said in the release. “During this month of commemoration for the sacrifices made by our veterans and our Armed Forces, we wanted to contribute by doing what we do best. This also serves as a reminder of CN’s role in the supply chain that has shaped our society for over 100 years.”
