Gang Forecast - All BC Regions

The 7 day Gang Forecast is calculated with a combination of direct input provided by the industry’s Vessel Agents (via the Vessel Allocation Forecast system), the Stevedore/Terminal operators and the BCMEA Dispatch staff. It is intended to show, at a glance, how busy various BC port regions are projected to be.  

 

The height and colour of the bars indicate the projected number of gangs requested to meet labour requirements in the port region for a 24 hour period.  The colour of bar is different for each port region, see below:

New Job Positions - Vancouver

The "New Job Positions - Vancouver" graph represents actual new longshore labour positions requested to be filled by the Vancouver dispatch center. It is intended to show, at a glance, how busy the port of Vancouver will be for the upcoming shifts.  The data is calculated based on combination of input from the Stevedore and/or Terminal operators in the port of Vancouver.

"Dispatch finish times" are stated by the dispatch center when all requested job positions have been assigned during the main dispatch.  Dispatch finish times do not reflect job assignments requested after order and cancellation times.

The colour and height of the bar represent the number of new positions requested for various shifts, see below:

Day Shift - 08:00 Start

   Green - bars indicate 0 - 99 new job positions have been requested
   Yellow- bars indicate 100 - 299 new job positions have been requested
