Jul. 6, 2017 - Cando Rail Services has won contracts to offer rail switching services at Domtar pulp and paper mills in Rothschild and Nekoosa, Wis.

Cando says it was selected in part “because of its excellent safety and operational record as a switching provider at multiple locations across North America.” The new contracts build on the relationship that was established when Cando performed rail switching services at Domtar’s Dryden, Ont., mill.

“Domtar is a highly successful, results driven company with a passion for safety. And that’s exactly the kind of company we like to partner with,” said Cando CEO Brian Cornick. “These contracts further expand our services in the United States and add to our expertise in the forest products industry.”

Cando began operations in Rothschild last month and will begin at Nekoosa this month. The company will operate two shifts, seven days a week at each location.

According to the parties, long-term goals for each operation include implementing and maintaining safety protocols and procedures, and to use Cando’s rail services experience to seek productivity gains.

Established in 1978 in Brandon, Man., Cando Rail Services moves two million tons of pulp, paper and lumber a year in more than 20,000 railcars.
