Following the major snowstorm which hit the Quebec and Ontario regions last night, terminal and rail operations will be impacted today. Please see below current situation and expected delays.
Please expect major delays throughout the day. The terminal has closed both gates at Viau and Maisonneuve this morning from 9 – 10 a.m. to process trucks that have already arrived. Gates will be reopening at 10 a.m., and will be open during their usual gate hours, but processing will be slow.
Due to the quantity of snow on pier to remove, the terminal will only be able to receive Export and Empty containers. There will be a hold on the pick-up of Import containers today, expected to resume tomorrow.
Rail traffic is currently halted in both directions, and will be halted until snow can be cleared off the tracks. We do not expect any rail deliveries to occur throughout the day today.
We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day, and will advise of any updates as they occur. For further information, please contact your local MSC Canada office.
