Port Monitors CN Service Suspension
Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00
Port Metro Vancouver has assessed the operational and community impact of the suspension of CN rail services to container terminals Centerm, Fraser Surrey Docks and Vanterm since July 13. The Port has determined that container dwell time appears to be within acceptable operating parameters at this time. CN and the terminals have utilized speed gates and extended gates to mitigate road traffic impacts.
Port Metro Vancouver has initiated action to clarify the rail volume thresholds required for CN to resume rail service to the three affected container terminals.
Port Metro Vancouver will vigorously pursue all available options to ensure port competitiveness, service consistency, reliability and choice for Port customers, while minimizing impacts on host communities.
Port Metro Vancouver invites commentary from commercial users expressing concerns or detailing specific impacts to operational performance since CN’s suspension of service to selected container terminals.
