CN has advised that they are currently experiencing higher-than-normal terminal dwell times in Prince Rupert, up to seven days in some cases.
The spike this month is due to construction at the terminal, which has impacted production and CN’s ability to run more trains. The new berth is expected to be completed in August, at which point CN anticipates achieving a significant improvement in dwell times.
Until then, CN will work closely with terminal operator DP World to minimize the dwell as much as possible.
