Crude by Rail
Carrying crude oil by railways is one of the mature means of transportation in Canada and the United States. Through many years of cooperation with CN Rail, CP Rail, Union Pacific and BNSF Railway, API’s rail operation team is providing logistic solutions to customers via rails to transport Canadian crude oil to the Gulf of Mexico, the west coast of Canada and the west coast of the U.S.
API offers door to door natural asphalt transportation services to our Asia customers. Our professional service team can provide integrated services to transport products from the production areas or from the export terminals to the customers designed addresses in Asia.
Meanwhile, our API trademarked Flexitank has received the AAR (American Association of Railroads) approval and is in the middle of the CN Rail’s approval process.
