August 6, 2020 – he stand-off between labour and employers at the Port of Montreal saw another strike disrupting container traffic this week. Frustrated by the situation, carriers have begun to redirect vessels to other ports. Following the end of consecutive strikes by longshoremen and port checkers, which halted operations at the port’s terminals last week, longshoremen began another 96-hour strike on Monday, which will end on Friday. Port checkers announced parallel action from Wednesday to Friday morning. Canaan Transport will continue to pro-actively assist customers who may be affected by this situation. CMA CGM Canada issued a notice this week to advise customers that it may divert Montreal-bound vessels to alternate ports or terminals in Canada "at very short notice," given the strike situation. It noted that any additional charges arising as a consequence of changes to routings would be passed onto the shipments.
