VANCOUVER, B.C. — Terminal Systems Inc. (TSI) has announced further changes to operations at the Port of Vancouver, according to the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association.

Operating capacity at the Vanterm and Deltaport terminals has either been reached or exceeded.

In the case of local import containers, TSI implemented a compulsory truck reservation system and extended the gate hours to attain maximum productivity for the current volume levels.

However, further steps are needed to significantly reduce the dwell time for local import containers so as to ensure the terminals remain fluid, stated the report. To attain this, effective July 4, TSI will further extend the truck gate hours as demand requires for the delivery of local import containers.
