Significant Flooding in British Columbia – Update #3

Dear Valued Customer:

Westwood remains in close contact with both rail suppliers, Canadian National (CN) and Canadian Pacific (CP), and terminal operator, DP World, at Centerm.

We are committed to working with all parties involved to mitigate cargo delays that will result from the flooding.

  • Both CN and CP are reporting a slow start-up of operations between Kamloops and Vancouver. Additional rain is forecasted across southwestern BC this week.
  • Intermodal rail activity has resumed at the Vancouver terminals on a limited basis.
  • Import and export traffic is still significantly backlogged but some progress is being made.

We thank you for your understanding and continued business support.

If you have any questions or require further assistance, please contact your Westwood Sales Manager.
