Hong Kong Terminal Strike Ends

The Hong Kong dock worker strike finally ended yesterday with workers agreeing to a pay increase after a month long labor dispute. While there certainly were some vessel delays at the early stages of the strike, we hadn’t noticed any large impact on international shipping between Hong Kong and the United States in recent weeks. In fact, terminal operators were indicating that operations were running at roughly 90% normal efficiency in the previous weeks.
