Week 47 Container Dwell Times Published By COSCO 2018-11-29

Dear Valued Customer,

China Ocean Shipping Company (COSCO) has published information on average dwell times at various Canadian West Coast Terminals where their vessels discharge.
 
Dwell time is defined as the amount of time that passes in between a container getting discharged and then rehandled to be put to rail.
 
Below is a chart that depicts average dwell at several facilities during the week of November 18 to November 25th (week 47):



Legend: PRR = Prince Rupert, CEN = Centerm, Vancouver, VAN = Vanterm, Vancouver, DLT = Deltaport, Vancouver
 
Week 47 dwell time averaged from as low as five and a half days for Prince Rupert on November 18th to as much as almost eleven and a half days for Centerm as of November 25th.
 
Trend lines for Prince Rupert show a gradual increase in dwell time over the week, while the one for Vanterm indicates a gradual increase.
 
Various factors affect dwell time including the frequency and regularity of sailings, rail capacity from the port and throughput at the port itself.
 
Heading into the Winter season, weather will be a factor affecting the operation of all of those supply chain elements.
 
This should be a fair indication of the overall current state of affairs on the West Coast for most marine carriers and how much time a particular unit might stay at the coast prior to being moved from there by rail.
 
Please contact your Milgram-C.H. Robinson Client Services representative for the status of any particular shipment.
 
Thank you for being our Valued Customer.
