Canadian ports on the East and West Coast of Canada are dealing with cargo backlogs, which are delaying the movement of shipments inland. The recent strike at the Port of Montreal has created a severe backlog of containers at both Halifax and Montreal, the two main ports of arrival in Eastern Canada. At the same time, ports on the West Coast of Canada are dealing with high levels of import volume, resulting in cargo movement delays.
It is expected it will take some time to clear the volume at these ports.
