Port of Montreal Resumes Operations
Operations at the Port of Montreal resumed on Saturday, May 2, following legislation passed by the Canadian Parliament. All terminals are open and in service.
Although operations have resumed, it is expected that it will take several days for ship and truck services to return to normal levels. During the stoppage, nearly 20,000 TEUs of container volume were trapped on the port and there are about 10 vessels scheduled to enter the port. Additional delays are expected.
Bill C-29, which was passed by the Canadian Parliament late last week, prevents further strikes until the two parties reach an agreement with the government providing mediators. The longshoremen have been without a contract since late 2018.
