Significant delays at two key U.S. west coast ports

Extreme congestion caused by unprecedented pre-Lunar New Year inbound volumes is causing major delays at Los Angeles and Long Beach ports. As a result, vessels generally have to wait two to three shifts after arrival to be unloaded. This has triggered a cascade of related issues, including extended vessel queue at berth, trucking shortages, chassis supply constraints, increased average street dwell time (7 days versus 3 days), terminal congestion and a shortage of railcars.

We will continue to monitor the situation and advise accordingly.
