Grain Monitorís Weekly Report:
The Performance Update for Grain Week 2 is now available. This report provides a snapshot of some current operational measures for the Western GHTS. These include stock levels, rail car allocation plans, port unloads, port shipments and vessel lineups.
A number of changes have been incorporated into the GMP Report for the 2015-16 Crop Year. Changes are as follows:
The timeframe for most of the graphs has been shortened from the entire crop year to ten trailing weeks and ten weeks ahead in order to improve the presentation. This is done throughout the report.
Railway performance graphs have been simplified to include only the orders accepted and the plan for each railway this year and last. (Pg. 3)
Allocation vs. unload performance is portrayed for the major western ports, by railway. (Pg. 4)
The current weekís unloads have been moved and are now presented before the year-to-date cumulative unloads. (Pg. 5)
A comparative line depicting the previous yearís vessel lineup has been added to the existing charts. (Pg. 8)
A small chart depicting the number of vessels cleared each week at Vancouver and Prince Rupert has been added following the graphs for each portís vessel lineup. (Pg. 8)
