As the situation both in Prince Rupert and Vancouver continues to deteriorate with import container dwell times reaching record levels, CN rail will be taking several steps to restore fluidity in the network with the establishment of multiple relief container yards where freight can be diverted to.

CN rail will as such assess a fee to shuttle containers over to the nominated relief yards. The fee will go into effect commencing Tuesday, August 9th, 2022 and will be applied on all store door cargo where Maersk’s nominated trucker is responsible for providing the dray to the door, also known as MPT (Maersk Preferred Trucker) and the container was also subject to a reroute over to one of the relief container yards. The pass-through charge will be represented as Additional Import Service as part of the billing process.

Containers to move to the relief yards will be subject to the below charges:

CN Rail Mississauga: $300
Container Storage Solutions (Brampton): $300
Paul Transport: $300
CN Valleyfield (Montreal): $550

Rail storage free time for above locations has also been reduced from 2 free days to 1 free day.

If you have further questions, please contact your local Maersk representative for more information.
