Customers utilizing the Port of Prince Rupert should expect delays. The port is experiencing major congestion due to an ongoing expansion project. A backlog of inbound containers and higher dwell times has resulted from the congestion.
In some cases, carriers are switching their port rotation to offload at Vancouver prior to Prince Rupert, a change meant to reduce the impact of congestion. As a result, customers should contact the appropriate service centers to determine the new arrival dates.
Deringer will continue to monitor the situation and advise as conditions warrant. Please contact your service center if you have questions concerning your cargo.
