TRUCKER STRIKE - A MONTH LATER

We have to apologize for the late update but if you haven't heard, the trucker strike ended...  last month.   Things around D&S have been moving at a very rapid pace, trying to get all of our clients containers off the docks now that all truckers are back to work.   Incase you didn't see it at the time, here is a link that you may want to take a look at.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/vancouver-port-truckers-reach-deal-to-end-strike-1.2587948
