Is it over?

If the Montreal lock-out is not over, it soon will be. At least that must be the opinion of MSC Shipping. It had three ships anchored off Halifax today, but as of 9:30 tonight two of them had upped anchor and were heading for Montreal. MSC must figure that the strike will be over and the workers will be back on the job by the time the ships get to Montreal.
MSC Alyssa and MSC Aniello were both doing 12 knots or more according to AIS, which is not fast, but they are moving.
MSC Tuscany is still at anchor, so she will likely pick up the cargo that is currently en route to Halifax after unloading her boxes.
Canada Express is due tomorrow for Hapag-Lloyd, and it seems likely she will continue in.
Also at 9:30 Oceanex's Cabot got under way from Bedford Basin anchorage for Corner Brook. She will pick up her westbound cargo there and continue ot Montreal, aslo hoping that things will be closer to normal when she gets there.
