US Port Congestion Update, 17th February
There have been considerable delays at all ports along the coast, with the labour dispute being the catalyst.
Both sides have taken actions to expedite the process in their favor, which has intensified the remaining issues. Lengthy delays and heavy congestion for all West Coast ports continue to increase, as containers have stacked up to the point of impeding loading and unloading operations. We have been following events closely and will continue to do so, in addition to relaying updates to you as quickly as possible.
Due to the uncertainty of the situation, and the considerable catching up which will need to occur once an agreement is signed, we would like to offer our support. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like the discuss any alternative options via the US East Coast, please contact your local BTi representative.
