Lengthy delays at CN are causing major delays in the delivery of containers 2017-07-07

It has been reported by several carriers that wait times at CN are taking up to five hours or more to obtain a container for delivery.  Truckers are now working around the clock in an attempt to lessen the amount of waiting time. 

There are several factors for the delays; higher volumes, peak season, staffing, not enough infrastructure to keep up with the demand, and two
back-to-back four day work weeks for the St-Jean-Baptiste and Canada Day Holidays.

Milgram has reported these delays to the various carriers, however we have not seen any improvement as of yet.  We will continue to push our carriers who are direct customers of CN to pressure them to bring normalcy back to the railyards.
