CN hikes rates for dwell times


CN is introducing new storage tariffs that dramatically increase the rates it charges after extended dwell times.

For example, at CN Brampton the rate after the first three days jumps to $350.00 per day, a $150.00 increase, and on the eighth day the rate increases to $500.00 per day.  Shippers should also take note of other key changes introduced by CN on May 15:

  • Introduction of three distinct terminal groups
  • Elimination of an additional free day on Sunday at U.S. terminals (no change for Canadian terminals, where CN has never offered a free day on Sunday)
  • Introduction of an additional free day for a Holiday

For more information, contact David Lychek, Manager – Ocean & Air Services.
