LA/Long Beach Port Labor Dispute Enters Second Week Without Resolution

Seven days after members of the OCU clerical works began striking, the same terminals in Los Angeles and Long Beach remain closed. Carriers are starting to divert vessels to other ports along the West Coast. Please check with your freight forwarder to see if vessels currently on the water are still bound for Los Angeles/Long Beach or whether they are being diverted.

As mentioned in my previous post, if you have containers heading to a Midwest location, you should consider booking with a carrier that discharges in Canada (Vancouver or Prince Rupert).
