Subject: Container Trucking Association of Ontario (CTAO) Signs Deal with Industry
|Source: CTAO; CIFFA
Please be advised that a settlement has been reached, and an agreement has been signed by both parties involved in the recent trucking dispute in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), allowing truckers involved to return to work this morning.
It should be noted that we have been advised of backlogs at container yards in the region, and as a result it will most likely take a few days to clear up.
Delmar will strive to expedite the delivery of our clients’ shipments, however please be prepared for some delays due to circumstances beyond our control such as accessibility of containers, line-ups at terminals, and/or possible shortages of available trucks.
Delmar is encouraging clients to make arrangements with our Ontario office for weekend deliveries, if possible, in order to minimise demurrage and detention fees that are currently accruing on many of the containers.
Additional information may be obtained by contacting your local Delmar representative.
