Vancouver port clogged with containers

| 3/9/2007

In Canada, the Port of Vancouver has expanded its hours of operations so that truckers can help get rid of a big backlog of containers.

According to media reports, the combination of a rail strike, bad weather and train derailments has left more than 13,000 containers undelivered.

A port authority spokesman said it could take a month and a half to clear out all the containers.
