News from CIFFA: Dwell Times Increase at Prince Rupert - Expect Delays
CIFFA has been advised that Maher terminal in Prince Rupert is now posting a 5 day dwell after vessel departure before containers start to load to rail. However we are also receiving anecdotal information that some dwell times are at 9 days and are expected to increase further as volumes continue to grow due to additional diverted US bound cargo. Every effort is being made to load rail containers on a FIFO (first in first out) basis, but exact ETD's of when containers will be loaded and trains depart cannot be provided.
