We have been informed of the disruptions at the Port of Vancouver due to the recent flooding and wanted to provide more information to you.
“Although progress has been made to restore main routes to the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley regions, rail and road operations servicing the key Canadian west coast port remain impacted by the recent flooding in British Columbia.
Rail and road operations servicing the Port of Vancouver remain impacted by the recent flooding in British Columbia (BC), although progress to restore main routes to the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley regions has been made in the last few days, and marine terminals at the Port of Vancouver are still operating.
In an operations update, the Port of Vancouver said “rail and highway infrastructure restoration work has re-established some key connections between the BC interior and the west coast. Anchorage demand remains high and truck operations at all container terminals remain steady”.
But it said the Vancouver gateway “continues to experience disrupted rail and truck movement due to flooding”, although “significant progress on repairs were made over the weekend on both rail and highway infrastructure”.
An operations update yesterday from shipping line Hapag-Lloyd highlighted that vessel delays, increased yard congestion and heightened anchorage demand are expected at Port of Vancouver for the time being.
Regarding GCT Delta Port Terminal, it said the majority of vessel operations have been idled until further notice, with no local export receiving until further notice, although the import CY gate remains open.
