May 1, 2021 – As expected, the Senate adopted Bill C-29, the Port of Montreal Operations Act, Friday night and the legislation received Royal Assent. Now that the port is open again, they will begin to work on the delays in availability of your Import Cargo scheduled to arrive at the Port of Montreal and for your Export Cargo previously scheduled to depart from the Port of Montreal. Cost Recovery measures may be necessary to cover any/all additional charges resulting from the congestion and increased dwell times at the port. Diversion fees may also apply if/when carriers divert Vessels. Canaan Transport welcomes the return to work and looks forward to a final resolution to this matter.
