Port congestion a headache for trucking companies

     Truck and container

Trucking companies that handle the movement of containers from an ocean port to another destination (rail ramp, warehouse, company location) have announced they are no longer willing to absorb extra costs that are a direct result of port congestion.   

The key concern is the extended time required to retrieve or return containers.  There are also complaints about the movement of containers to new locations with no warning and a general lack of communication, leading to extra costs for rail storage, dead runs, demurrage, and pre-pulls.
