Severe Congestion at Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach

 In Industry Insider, Industry News

Due to unprecedented pre-Lunar New Year inbound volumes, Los Angeles and Long Beach ports are experiencing extreme congestion.  Below is a quick overview of what is occurring:

  1. More vessels – creating labor shortage and extended berth times
  2. Truck Power – cannot keep up with demand
  3. Chassis Shortage – containers/chassis out of port for longer than normal
  4. Dwell Times – increased by 3-7 days
  5. Rail – terminals changing destinations from on-dock to off-dock, more pressure on truckers and chassis supply
