CP Rail Will Experience Train Shutdown Into And Out Of Canada Effective April 21 2018

By Pacific Customs Brokers, Pacific Customs Brokers Apr 20, 2018

The embargo for shipments routing to and from Canadian Pacific (CP) Canadian locations is in place to be effective 0001 Saturday April 21.

The embargo applies to:

  • All shipments leaving Canada
  • All shipments arriving in Canada

CP has said they will continue to execute a safe and structured shutdown of its train operations in Canada.

In a customer advisory sent Wednesday evening April 18, CP said it had received notice from the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference Train and Engine (TCRC) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) that members of the respective unions would be withdrawing services to operate freight and passenger trains and to maintain CP's signaling systems in Canada effective 0001, Saturday, April 21.

CP said it will continue to bargain in good faith with the TCRC and the IBEW and remains committed to achieving a win-win solution for the company and the two unions, and the embargo can be rescinded at any time.

If you currently ship by rail you will need a contingency plan as alternative modes start to congest. Pacific Customs Brokers and PCB Freight Management can provide you with the opportunities to get your goods where you need them to go. We will keep you updated on this situation as events continue to unfold. Feel free to contact us for all your freight forwarding and customs clearance needs at 1.888.538.1566.
