Do you get an error message or does it just not load any data?

OK first thing I've noticed: You have the LABELER column set up as char(5) in the destinaion table, but in your file, the data is actually 7 characters - it is actually followed by two spaces.
You have a few options for fixing this but probably the most obvious one is to use a Derivied column transformation to trim the input down to five characters. You just need to be totally certain the input data will only ever be five characters.
An easier alternative is to extend the destination table column to 7 characters, but you really need to sort out your data types as early as possible so the derived column is the best solution.

You'll have to repeat this for all the columns, most likely - either extend the length in the destination table, or trim the string in a derived column transformation.
Also, is there any reason you are using a global temporary table? why not use a normal table? That is how this is normally done. It may save some complications down the track.
