DP World Says Dwell Times Normalized at Prince Rupert 2017-10-03

DP World issued a customer advisory that DP World Prince Rupert dwell times have been normalized as planned and are currently in the range of 3 to 4 days. Additionally, the four-week plan of balancing volume between two terminals, as well as with the strategic scheduling of vessel arrivals, is seeing progress, said the advisory. As a result, the amount of traffic diverted to Vancouver will be significantly less than initially planned.

“We recognize the impact the dwell times have had to our clients over the last two weeks, and we greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we worked to quickly restore them.

“The flexibility offered by our global network of DP World terminals, along with your support and the collaboration of our partners has provided us with the ability to meet challenging market conditions with practical solutions. It is because of this that we were able to restore dwell times within two weeks, and we would like to thank all of our customers for working with us during these disruptions,” the advisory said.

Further to previous updates, DP World also informed customers it remains on schedule to release the terminal’s full capacity of 1.35-million TEU by the end of October.
