Fee for processing an application for a producer railway car.

Shipping grain by a producer car can involve several different players. The Canadian Grain Commission is responsible for allocating producer cars. The railways (Canadian Pacific (CP), CN and short line railways) are also involved as they operate the rail networks. When a part of the process is handled by CP or CN, you will be directed to that web site for more information.
