Port of Montreal terminal implements extended gate hours
Port of Montreal container terminal operator Termont Montréal Inc. announced that starting September 17th, 2018 it will offer extended gate hours during week days, opening at 6:00 a.m. and closing at 11:00 p.m.
The longer hours follow testing through a pilot project which included a study into the cost-sharing responsibilities of each party. As was identified in the study, a flat rate of $35 per loaded container going through Termont terminals will be implanted starting on September 17th, billed to the trucking companies.
Since the start of the pilot project, all stakeholders have seen an improvement in fluidity, with faster gate access during peak hours leading to quicker turn-around times and better use of assets across the board.
Termont says it is committed to meeting the evolving needs of its supply chain partners. and believes collaboration is key to finding solutions to challenges in the supply chain.
