As you may have heard, the Canadian National Railroad has declared a work stoppage. This has created a temporary halt to the transportation of materials and goods into the New England Region from Canada. These supply disruptions are not unprecedented and we have worked through them before. They are usually resolved quickly.
Bourne’s Energy wants to ensure its customers that contingency plans have been in place for years to respond to these types of situations. We are working closely with our suppliers to provide any products typically transported by rail via alternative routes. There is plenty of product in the supply chain. Bourne’s Energy has been in business for over 70 years and we have established very strong relationships with multiple suppliers in southern New England, New York, as well as Canada.
The safety of our customers is important and we continue to monitor the situation closely.
