Dear Customer,


A blockade in southern Alberta at the United States border is entering its fourth day.


A convoy of commercial trucks, vehicles and camper vans has been blocking the highway at the Coutts border crossing since Saturday to protest COVID-19 restrictions.


The demonstration is tied to an ongoing nationwide protest over federal rules for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated Canadian truckers entering Canada from the U.S., which took effect earlier this month.


It mandates that truckers who are not fully vaccinated must get a PCR test and quarantine.


The United States implemented a similar mandate on Jan. 22 requiring that all U.S.-bound travelers — including truckers — show proof they've had the required shots.


The blockade of vehicles has disrupted services and halted traffic at one of the busiest ports of entry in Canada.


We are continuing to monitor and will provide further update as available.

In the interim, we are working to provide alternative carrier and routing options for those cargos impacted.
