Cold Weather Alert affecting Rail Operations in Western Canada

Due to the recent cold weather conditions in Western Canada, we want to remind everyone that this has a severe impact on rail movements. Shipments moving by rail through these regions can anticipate delays of up to 48 hours. Severe cold and high snowfall present challenging conditions to safe railway operations, primarily to rail braking systems. As part of winter preparedness plans to ensure safe train operations, train length is restricted limiting the number of containers that can be accommodated, which results in longer transit times and congestion at railyards.

For more information, please call Debbie McGuire, Manager – Freight Solutions at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1308.
