Update on ongoing transportation disruptions: December 9


We are pleased to share that product sourced from the LDB’s Delta Distribution Centre (DDC), including non-stocked wholesale products and bottle picks, are now available to customers serviced by the Kamloops Distribution Centre (KDC). An increased availability of transportation equipment and carrier capacity has enabled the LDB to resume this service.

We recognize the impact that this disruption has had on customers serviced by the KDC, and our distribution teams will continue to work diligently to ship orders as they are received to ensure products are delivered to wholesale customers as soon as possible, however, ongoing transportation disruptions may continue to result in delivery delays. We currently expect delays of up to two weeks from the scheduled delivery time.

While we are continuing to use all available routes to ship product throughout the province, transportation routes continue to be slow.

We continue to seek work with our vendors, freight carriers, and the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission to transfer product and reroute shipment, including via northern B.C. and the United States, to ensure shipments are delivered to customers a quickly as possible.

The LDB distribution centres in the Lower Mainland and the Interior have regular inventory levels to supply customers in their regions but customers may experience temporary service delays and limited product availability due to disrupted transportation routes.

Key product shortages and supplier stock outs can be referenced here.

Once again, we thank you for your continued patience, understanding and cooperation as we continue to work through these challenges, and we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
