This gives cn leverage over labor in Halifax

Another Canadian Tire container was on 142 yesterday. Haven’t seen any in about a year or so, I believe they were waiting on customs issues with mixed SKUs in the boxes. Perhaps the new customs facility makes life a bit easier now in that regard, although I’m sure plenty of Hapag and other boxes have mixed goods at this point. CT is supposedly an anchor tenant for the new Lancaster Logistics Park yet to be built

40+ empty wells on 142 tonight through Greenville Jct. just after 5pm. Liverpool Express is Saint John Bound, and Google tells me this is a Hapag-Lloyd vessel.

Marinetraffic tracker shows hapag’s Liverpool express in the bay of fundy. Should dock tomorrow.

Are any outbound containers moving via cp through port SJ or is it all inbound? Dead heading empty wells eastbound all the time isn’t healthy business

Another 25 empty wells on today's 142, MSC Celine currently docked at SJ. Another Canadian Tire box on there as well.

Is the new Canadian Tire container one of their 60 ft. versions or their smaller 53 ft. versions?

I’m pretty sure the msc Celine is on the Caribbean svc lane that doesn’t generate traffic for cp unfortunately

Obviously that is one of their 53 footers. The 60' containers can only go on top of a 53 footer.

Looks like CT started tendering boxes starting December, there has been about 1 a train so far this week. Remember, they have some containers that are just red without any logos, lettered CDAU. That probably coincides with the new customs facility opening also this month... hopefully we start seeing more of these and surely will once Lancaster Logistics Park is completed in 2022.

50+ more empty wells east yesterday on 142, and it doesn't look like anything came back at all on 251, no containers on the rear. SC Marigot docked last night, perhaps some containers for Monday? This vessel appears to be affiliated with the CMA CGM "Island Bridge Express".

That ship arrived from Dominican Republic
We will see if it generates any traffic for cp
Meanwhile, up in Halifax there is a large container ship on dock from Singapore and a big one from malaysia approaching the harbor. So while SJ is starting to get some transatlantic boxes Halifax has direct Asia svc

"Island Bridge Express" seems to just be a rebranding of the CAGEMA service that's been calling in SJ for a few years now.

Agree. So far, I’m not aware of this svc generating any cp business. Cn9634 said a while back that it’s cn business

They must be expecting something soon, that's about 75 wells that have gone east empty without returning full.
