Trucking industry sees subtle change since March as Canada-U.S. border restrictions remain

A new report out suggests the Canada-U.S. border closure could be extended through until the end of July. Truckers are still deemed essential, so it won’t impact their business. At least not too much. Dave Earle is the president of the BC Trucking Association, he says that while the amount of traffic for the semis is pretty steady, it’s the volume of what they’re shipping that’s gone down since the border closed in late March. “That’s a reflection of economic activity,” Earle says. “If we don’t have as many things being made and being shipped, there’s just not as much freight.”
