Weeks of inland congestion and rail car shortages, especially in Toronto and Montreal, is causing some shipping lines to make changes to their scheduled calls at the Port of Vancouver. The second largest shipping line in the world is sending some vessels to alternate US ports to temporarily discharge Vancouver rail cargo. We anticipate that there will be some delays for import cargo coming into Canada.
Your Canaan Group customer service representative will reach out to you if there are any changes to the upcoming ETA of your shipments. Coming into the fall season, shipping lines are reanalyzing their routings carefully to avoid any further congestion at the terminals.
