Termont To Charge Gate Service Fee Starting On September 17, 2018 2018-09-06

Termont Terminal at the Port of Montreal has issued the following news release:

To all our partners,
 
With a growing focus on fluidity, flexibility and maximizing assets, our industry supply chain partners identified the need to extend gate hours to help smooth wait times for truckers coming to the Port de Montreal. A team of supply chain partners and key stakeholders, led by CargoM and including Termont, L’association du camionnage du Quebec and other important trucking companies came together to design a clear and fair program to address the need for better gate fluidity.  We launched a pilot project to test this in April of this year which was a resounding success, and more in line with what other ports are doing across Canada.
 
Starting September 17th, 2018, Termont will offer extended gate hours during week days, opening at 6:00 a.m. and closing at 11:00 p.m.  The pilot project included a study into the cost-sharing responsibilities of each party, and as was identified in the study, a flat rate of $35 per loaded container going through our terminals will be implanted starting on September 17th, billed to the trucking companies.
 
Since the start of the pilot project, all stakeholders have seen an improvement in fluidity, with faster gate access during peak hours leading to quicker turn-around times and better use of assets across the board. 
 
As always, Termont is committed to meeting the evolving needs of our supply chain partners and believe collaboration is key to finding solutions to challenges in the supply chain. 
 
Information about the administrative aspects of the program will be provided to you shortly.
 
In the meantime, please feel free to Contact our Customer Service Department or call 514-254-0526.
 
We thank you for your business,
