As part of the Port’s ongoing efforts to work in collaboration with industry partners to improve efficiency and reliability, this new pilot program builds on several initiatives already underway, including a review of how container trucks currently access the Port, a new decal program and the terminal operator gate compliance initiative.
The six-month pilot program is currently underway with volunteers from the local container drayage community, including training, installation and the use of GPS communication devices at no cost.
Benefits of the Container Truck Efficiency Pilot Program:
Preliminary GPS summary data by terminal for the previous week and the previous 4 weeks is now available. Aggregated average turn times are shown from the pilot group of 300 trucks.
It is important to note, that the sample size of 16% is small and reflects both “regular and speed gate” reservations.
The intent of the pilot is to bring transparency based on factual information as provided by the GPS data.
Note: this information will be updated weekly – end of day on Tuesdays.
Port Metro Vancouver's Truck Licensing System (TLS) requires all drayage companies desiring to dray marine containers to or from Port facilities be approved for a TLS licence.
