As a result of extensive flooding and resulting landslides, delays to freight movements travelling through British Columbia from the Port of Vancouver are anticipated.
This comes following extensive rains over the weekend that lead to flooding. The Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd have been working to divert shipments where possible and get lines reopened, but are experiencing delays due to impassable tracks along the Fraser River Valley.
We will continue to monitor this situation and provide you with relevant updates.
