Fallout from the CTAO truckers strike

     CTAO

The strike by members of the Container Trucking Association of Ontario (CTAO) ended on September 22nd, but the fallout is going to be felt for a long time in the form of increased fees and rates.  Within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the most significant increase is a 35% spike in container cartage rates.  Other direct negative results of the strike include:  

  • Out of town FCL deliveries increased above the average 35% increase seen on local FCL GTA deliveries
  • Waiting time reduced to one hour, and waiting time rates per hour increased
  • Destuff and drayage charges increased (cost to destuff containers)
  • Prepull charges increased
