Vancouver B.C. Terminals Announce Night Gate Hours And Implement Daytime Reservation Fees

June 23, 2014
Dear Valued Westwood Customer,

The attached announcement from DP World (Canada) Inc. and Terminal Systems Inc. (TSI) provides details of new night gate operations that will be available Monday-Friday beginning July 2, 2014 (view attachment here). In conjunction with these night gate operations, a new “Daytime Reservation Fee” will be implemented for all day gate moves.

These changes are being made in response to the March 26th labor agreement between the governments of Canada and British Columbia, Port Metro Vancouver, and members of the United Truckers Association and labor union Unifor, and are designed to improve port trucking efficiencies.

Please note that the new charges related to daytime gate moves will be for the account of the cargo. All daytime gate moves made by Westwood on behalf of customers will require signed guarantees of payment prior to movement. Westwood will coordinate these details with each customer individually.

If you have any questions or require further assistance, please contact your Westwood Sales Manager or Customer Service Specialist at 1-800-621-4371.

Westwood thanks all of our customers for your understanding and continued business support, as we work together to improve supply chain efficiencies.
