Major Service Disruption at Port of Montreal Causes Changes In Vessel Rotations

: Transport

Carriers Scramble To Rework Schedules As a Result of Port of Montreal Congestion 2018-11-15

Dear Valued Customer,

We have been advised that service at the Port of Montreal has diminished to the point that marine carriers have been forced to alter scheduling for several upcoming sailings.
 
As an example, CMA CGM (and their consortium partner Maersk) announced changes to the following vessels:
 
Vessel name:
 
Revised
Montreal ETA
ETA Halifax
(outbound)
EM KEA 0ED1OE1MA Dec. 10 Dec. 15
MAERSK PENANG 0ED1QE1MA Dec. 17 Dec. 22
MAERSK PATRAS 0ED1SE1MA Dec. 24 Dec. 29
VUOKSI MAERSK 0ED1UE1MA Dec. 31 Jan. 1
 
CMA CGM explains that they have executed a contingency plan the need for which arose out of continued delays resulting from labour shortages and terminal congestion at the Port of Montreal.
 
Their departures have been pushed back by one week in each case.
 
Hapag Lloyd, MSC, OOCL and their consortium partners or other carriers have not yet announced any changes to upcoming rotations.
 
We will do our best to keep clients informed about this situation.
 
Please contact your Milgram-C.H. Robinson Client Services representative for the status of any particular shipment that is due to call and discharge at or depart from Montreal over this period.
