CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Rail Blockades Update

With the removal of rail blockades across Canada, rail operations are slowly returning to normal.

CN Rail has started calling back many of its temporarily laid-off employees in Eastern Canada. The significant backlog of trains parked on CN’s tracks and in its yards is being processed through a methodical recovery plan. Rail cars that have been sitting idle at various marshalling yards across Eastern Canada are now starting to move to their final destination.

CP Rail, while not significantly affected by rail blockades, is dealing with a surge in volume as shippers switched to their services in light of the CN Rail blockades. CP Rail is also working on clearing this high level of volume presently distributed throughout its system.

Despite the progress being made to resolve this ongoing issue, it is expected to take some time to clear the backlog of cargo and have both services running at normal operational levels.
