Update to Caribou BC fires and shipping status

Please be advised as of 4:30 PM Monday July 10 Clark Freightways is still unable to delivery to Cache Creek, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Ashcroft BC as all access is blocked due to the continued road closures of Highway 1 and Highway 97. DriveBC http://www.drivebc.com/ is advising the next update for Tuesday noon which is not a great sign, and we suggest not to ship to these locations or they will be held at the closest terminal.

In addition, all shipments to Prince George, locations west and north of Prince George (Terrace, Smithers, Prince Rupert, Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson and surrounding communities) will be temporarily routed via Highway 5 and 16 to keep moving to schedule. We will be instituting a 10% surcharge effective immediately for these shipments to offset a portion of the additional costs until highway 97 is accessible again.

Also note, shipments to Quesnel will now be routed via Prince George and this is temporarily a two day service point.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding in this unique circumstance.

BC Forest Fires effecting service to Cache Creek, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Ashcroft

Please be advised Clark Freightways was/is unable to delivery to Cache Creek, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Ashcroft BC due to road closures for freight picked up Friday July 7, 2017. We are planning delivery today for Quesnel bound freight picked up July 7 as road closures over the weekend would not allow to make schedule.

There is currently no ETA for access into these communities, and we strongly advise not to ship to Cache Creek, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Ashcroft or Clark Freightways will not be held responsible for any perishable products.

All northbound freight for Prince George, West and North of Prince George is currently not affected, and those that were picked up on Friday July 7 delivered/are delivering according to schedule.

As this situation is fluid, we will advise as soon as conditions change. Please refer to http://www.drivebc.com for road conditions and updates.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

February 9 – Outbound Shipments delayed across province due to severe winter conditions

Dear Valued Customer;

Please be advised all shipments picked up on Thursday February 9th to/from the Greater Vancouver have been affected due to adverse driving conditions with major highway closures including Hwy 1, 3, and 5. As of 10:00AM Feb 10 only highway 3 is open with major delays.

As a result, our drivers had to park all units en-route last evening.  As soon as conditions allow we will be moving February 9th freight to their destination, with the majority of overnight points expected to deliver Saturday February 11th should highways reopen in a timely manner.

Shipments from Greater Vancouver to Vancouver Island, Sunshine Coast, and Whistler have not been affected, except Courtenay and points north which can expect delays.

All pick-ups today (February 10) in the Greater Vancouver area for overnight service should deliver on Tuesday February 14.  If you choose to ship temperature control freight today, Clark Freightways will not accept any liability to possible claims. For two day points please contact Customer Service.

Should you have any questions, please contact Customer Service or your Account manager at 604-472-2130 or 1-877-972-5275

We will update as soon as we have more information.

Your truly,

Staff and Management,

Clark Freightways

Service Resuming Monday June 20 for Service to North Eastern British Columbia

Please be advised that shipments going to North Eastern British Columbia (Dawson Creek, Fort St John, Fort Nelson and surrounding areas) will recommence Monday June 20th.

We expect to be able to maintain our current service schedule, however ‎due to the road closure of Highway 97 at Chetwynd it will incur significant additional costs as your freight will be routed through Alberta to reach its final destination.

This will affect shipments to: CHARLIE LAKE / CHETWYND / CLAYHURST / DAWSON CREEK / FORT NELSON / FORT ST JOHN / HUDSONS HOPE / MOBERLY LAKE / MONTNEY / POUCE COUPE / TAYLOR / TUMBLER RIDGE

For the major centres the service schedule is as follows (Ex-Vancouver):
Pick-up Monday             Delivery: Wednesday
Pick-up Wednesday      Delivery: Friday
Pick-up Friday                Delivery: Monday

Please contact Clark Customer Service or Dispatch at 1-877-972-5275 for updated information and to schedule orders.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Sincerely,
