CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Winter storms slow movement of freight across Canada

Supply chain routes on both coasts have been hit hard by extreme freeze/thaw cycles, wind, rain and flooding, leading to significant congestion at many key points in the Canadian supply chain. Specific problem areas include delayed ship dockings, berth congestion, lack of railcar availability and shorter trains. The results are already being felt:

  • In Halifax, the departure of some vessels has been delayed by 7-8 days.
  • Container exam waits at West Coast Vancouver terminals are 15 days longer than usual.

If you have any questions concerning shipments booked with Universal Logistics and how they may be impacted by the above, please call (905) 882-4880, ext. 308 – Debbie McGuire, Manager – Freight Solutions.
