Port of Vancouver
All terminals in Vancouver are in pretty good shape, and the 4.3 days average dwell time announced yesterday by the Port of Vancouver in their performance update matches what our operations team has reported on live shipments transiting through Vancouver.
Port of Montreal
The Port of Montreal continues to experience longer dwell times than any other port. Although the published average is 5.5 days for the month of March, containers can wait up to 14 days to load on rail. Please consider this additional time as part of the total transit time, especially for projects with tight deadlines.
Port of Halifax
The Port of Halifax reports 3.4 & 3.8 days dwell times for their two terminals Fairview Cove and South End.
However, our operations team has seen an increase from 5 days to 7-8 days for dwell time, partly due to an increased number of TEUs being rerouted via Halifax to counteract the 2 weeks delay for the Montreal routing.
Please do not hesitate to contact our Sales and CSR team for further information and updates.
