15 Jun Port of Halifax boosts rail intermodal capacity with second daily train
Posted at 14:38h in Blog
|Rail intermodal capacity at the Port of Halifax is increasing with CN’s addition of a second daily train serving inland markets, effective Friday, June 17. The Halifax Port Authority, terminal operator PSA Halifax and CN have been working to reduce terminal dwell time which has been affected by supply chain issues including intermodal ramp congestion in Central Canada. The addition of a second daily train will improve the fluidity of our rail intermodal services and reduce dwell. CN will be providing further information at the end of the week.
The Halifax Port Authority has made more yard space available to the terminal operator (PSA Halifax) for the storage of empty containers and this will also contribute to improving the efficiency of terminal operations. Meanwhile, the Port of Halifax continues to see normal vessel operations with no vessels sitting at anchor awaiting a berth.
