Canadian Pacific Railway Limited Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Price and mix accounted for 5% of the revenue gain, fuel surcharge was 1% and the FX impact was the remaining 2%. Revenue ton miles were up 1%, and carloads were flat due to the strike volume impacts. And Kathryn will talk to this in a few minutes.

For the second quarter of 2012, CP, again, delivered on our price renewal target of 3% to 4%, and we continue to target inflation plus pricing for the rest of 2012. For the remainder of my comments, I'll speak to currency adjusted revenues.

While May's labor disruption impacted short-term Canadian grain volumes, the major factor was, as I spoke to last quarter, the continued weak export demand for U.S. grains and the poor U.S. spring wheat crop in North Dakota.
