VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Vancouver Port Authority (VPA) is requiring all non-container truck traffic to use the inside lanes to access the port.
The new requirement is part of the VPA’s effort to reduce wait times for container haulers. The rule will take effect Nov. 9 when a new program is implemented to monitor container truck wait times.
Container truckers will be required to swipe their Port PASS ID card to gain access to and exit south shore port roadway gates, the VPA has announced. Container truck drivers will only use the outside lanes of the south shore entry and exit points.
“The VPA is committed to minimizing disruptions to your business resulting from this change in operations. Your patience is appreciated,” the port authority said in a release.
