The previously negotiated truce agreement between the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) and Port of Montreal longshoremen (CUPE local 375) is due to expire on March 21st, 2021.
Hapag-Lloyd understands the importance of maintaining consistency throughout the supply chain. We are monitoring the situation closely and are fully engaged in assisting you in the event of a work stoppage, including rerouting of cargo wherever possible. We also encourage our customers to explore alternative options on other Hapag-Lloyd services by visiting our website at www.hapag-lloyd.com.
Further details will be announced in due course.
Presently, Hapag-Lloyd services continue to call the Port of Montreal, operating under regular parameters. Import dwell times remain low at all terminals and we continue to accept export bookings on all services.
