06 Jul Port of Halifax update on supply chain challenges
Posted at 14:29h in Blog
|We are aware customers are experiencing rail intermodal transport delays to certain rail ramps as reflected in this week’s average dwell report. We can report positively that vessels continue to dock upon arrival and un-dock for departure without delay. Terminal truck transport remains fluid. With the recent actions undertaken by CN and PSA Halifax introducing a second daily train and with the addition of terminal handling equipment at PSA Halifax Fairview Cove, we are operating with fluidity to all intermodal rail ramps except for Toronto. Toronto issues are well-documented within the industry. The Halifax Port Authority, CN, and PSA Halifax continue working toward integrated solutions to streamline operations. Vessel Berthing Delays|
