Port Metro Vancouver is trying to shift container truck traffic to evenings and overnight.
As of Tuesday, gates at its three terminals in the Lower Mainland will be open until 1 a.m. five nights a week.
It is also imposing a $50 fee for truckers who continue to offload cargo during busy daytime hours.
The measures were included in a list of possible solutions suggested in response to the container truckers’ strike in the spring, where they expressed frustration with long wait times.
A cooling-off period imposed in the job action is set to expire soon.
Both sides are waiting for mediator Vince Ready’s recommendations.
