Red Lake Road Closure Surcharge

May 13, 2022

Dear Valued Customer,

Due to recent flooding in Ontario, road closures have interrupted our normal transportation routes. On Wednesday May 9th, Highway 105, the main access into Red Lake washed out, closing the road in both directions and cutting off access to the community.

Gardewine is currently utilizing an on and off road detour in order to continue servicing Red Lake. Due to these extenuating circumstances, we have had to run additional miles and incur additional expense to service the community. We will be implementing a road closure surcharge for all shipments that are destined for this location and the communities that they service.

The road closure surcharge will be applied to each shipment based upon billed shipment weight as a percentage of the total weight on the trailer.

Criteria for the Surcharge:
– Shipments in transit after May 13th, 2022 originating or destined for the community of Red Lake and its surrounding areas.

At this time, it is unclear when Highway 105 will be reopened. We ask that you anticipate and plan for delays while repairs to the road are taking place.

We appreciate your understanding on this matter.
