Continuing delays and congestion at CN’s Toronto terminals are creating a financial burden for freight shippers, says the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA). In a letter sent to the rail operator on September 1st, CIFFA calls for the following corrective actions:
- Monitor wait time outside gates and compensate trucking companies for wait time that exceeds 30-45 minutes
- Extend the time before storage charges apply to perhaps 48 hours
- Give free time for Saturdays, Sundays and Statutory holidays until operations return to normal
- Do not charge storage for dray operations who miss their reservation window because they were forced to wait in-gate for several hours
