Canada – West Coast Port Dwell Times

Import ocean containers destined for Canadian inland points that are transiting through the ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert have been experiencing longer than normal terminal dwell times. 
 
A number of factors are contributing to these delays including; vessel schedule irregularities, slow steaming, vessels unable to berth on schedule, port congestion, cargo volume surges, and ongoing rail car shortages. 
 
In addition, Inter-modal traffic delays combined with lag times in accessing containers for local pick-up in both Vancouver and Prince Rupert are expected to continue, as a result of high ground counts, rail operational disruptions and overall reduced productivity. 
 
Delmar continues to coordinate with carriers, terminals and railway operators to expedite your cargo as quickly as possible. 
 
For more information, please contact your local Delmar Representative.
