April 8, 2019 – Emprical evidence and on the ground information from our colleagues at these two ports show that there is still continued congestion at the Port of Vancouver and the Port of Prince Rupert. Although the delays to load containers have slightly improved, it appears that there is still a waiting period of between 5-8 days after container is grounded before being loaded onto rail. We anticipate that this will continue to improve for this next month until mid-May, when peak season traditionally begins.
