    Can't offer much in the way of advice on cans, anytime I talked to a CN/CP contractor, or CN/CP directly about being an O/O, they hung up after they figured out I was White/Canadian.

    ProFormance Intermodal is the biggest show in town, for independent can haulers.

    Lots of company’s have their own chassis, enough that there are pool chassis and own chassis lanes at the ports I go to.
