CN Takes Measures To Alleviate Vancouver Area Congestion

: Transport

Canadian National (CN) Experiencing Congestion in Vancouver 2018-12-04

Dear Valued Customer,

Canadian National Railway (CN) has issued the following customer service bulletin:
 
CN is experiencing service issues in the greater Vancouver area because of high levels of railcars (loads and empties) for local customers/terminals as well as for the New Westminster interchange. The number of railcars has reached unprecedented levels that are preventing us from providing local and interchange service. CN is working with BNSF to increase the interchange capacity. Currently, the BNSF does not have the ability to receive all traffic being sent there due to a large volume increase.
 
This situation has forced us to take extreme measures such as shutting down the pipeline to the New Westminster interchange (BNSF & UP) with the use of permits starting December 5th as well as the use of permits to a few local terminals as of December 1st.  Please work with your respective Account Managers who will explain the permit process for each permitted location as well don’t hesitate to contact your Service Delivery Representative for additional information.
 
CN is aware that these actions are negatively affecting customers and want to assure you that we are actively engaged in trying to improve the situation. With winter upon us, we will most likely keep working using the permitting system for New Westminster and many of the terminals throughout the winter.
 
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your patience as we work through our backlog.
