Crude oil shipper switching to safer tanker cars

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- A fuel shipping company says it will voluntarily start requiring compliance with updated rail car standards for all crude oil trains arriving at its East and West Coast terminals, starting in upstate New York and Oregon.

Global Partners, based in Waltham, Mass., says Wednesday it will only accept trains consisting entirely of the new type of cars, which are more resistant to puncturing and leakage in a derailment like the one that killed 47 people in Canada last year.

The new policy will take effect June 1 at Global's terminals in Albany and Clatskanie, Ore.

The so-called CPC-1232 standards for new tanker cars were developed by the American Railroads Tank Car Committee for cars ordered since October 2011. There are still tens of thousands of older DOT-111 cars on the tracks.
