Montreal ARGO Customs Brokers news. Quebec Spring Thaw Restrictions – Domestic Intermodal.

Effective Monday March 2, 2015, CP will not accept or in-gate any overweight containers. Overweight loads will be returned to the Shipper at their own expense. For Domestic shipments where CP performs the drayage, weights must be reduced and evenly distributed in the unit in order to avoid possible charges and fines associated with the Quebec Spring Thaw restrictions. Shippers retain responsibility for any such charges.

Once Quebec Spring Thaw restrictions have been published by the Quebec Ministry of Transport, CP will advise via Customer Bulletin when the restrictions will end. 

Zones & Weights:

ZONE 1 Montreal–Montmagny–Sherbrooke–St-Jerome 
ZONE 2 Val D’Or–Chicoutimi–Sept-Iles–Riviere du Loup 
ZONE 3 Remaining portion of QUEBEC.
