Rail-Bridge News and Announcements
Northwest Container Services Closing at 2pm Daily Until Further Notice

10 March 2016

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT DUE TO UNPRECEDENTED VOLUMES AND HEAVY CONGESTION WE WILL BE CLOSING OUR GATE AT 14:00 EACH DAY THIS WEEK.

We do not have information about future receiving for vessels. We also do not have info on when a vessel will cut. We are contacting the ports every day, to find out what each port will receive from us on our next outbound train.  We use that information to build this email. Unfortunately, receiving at the ports is also changing regularly and as a consequence our receiving can change just as regularly and without notice. We are unable to provide predictions or estimation of future receiving what we know is communicated below. Please consider this before calling or emailing about future receiving.

On Tuesday, 10 March 2015 we will be accepting cargo for the following vessels.

COS HONG KONG 0112W - SEATTLE POL (CSHK) CMA PARSIFAL 009W - SEATTLE POL (CPRSL) MSK GEORGIA 1512W - SEATTLE POL (MGRGA) NYK SEATTLE EXPRESS 035W - TACOMA POL (STX) HJS OTTAWA 0109W - SEATTLE POL (HNOT)

RELEASING/RECEIVING WINDOWS FOR K LINE VESSELS The increased labor productivity means we'll have several NOWCO-A vessel schedules sailing within just a few days of each other. To better improve WB schedule integrity and minimize any further delay, the Venetiko 211E and Bear Mountain Bridge 042E will discharge import cargo only and their WB voyages have been cancelled. As a result, current WB bookings will be adjusted.

  1. All current WB bookings for the TASMAN 002W originally scheduled to sail TIW 4/8 will be shifted to the Lions Gate Bridge 073W, ETD TIW 4/9.
  2. All current WB bookings for the Venetiko 211W, originally scheduled  to sail TIW 4/1, will be shifted to the TASMAN 002W now scheduled to sail 3/28.
  3. All current WB bookings for the Bear Mountain Bridge 042W, originally scheduled to sail TIW 4/15, will be shifted to the James River Bridge 032W now scheduled to sail 4/16.
