CN is experiencing higher-than-normal ground counts at its Brampton and Malport intermodal terminals as a result of a surge in imports and the residual effect of the vessel diversions due to the Port of Montreal work stoppage.
These imports have led to a higher inventory of empties being returned to CN’s Mississauga (MISC) yard over the last few weeks. As a result, the yard is at capacity and, until Monday, November 16, CN will not accept any more empties at the facility. Out-gates at the yard will be open for customers who wish to pick up empties for exports.
This plan will reduce gate activity at the yard, allowing operations to focus on the current inventory and to execute shuttle plans in order to bring ground counts back to normal levels.
