Due to increasing congestion at the USWC port terminals, truckers are unable to guarantee that they can pick up a container before the last free day. It is possible that demurrage charges will occur. We are doing everything we possibly can to prevent and minimize these occurrences. However severe terminal congestion has created a situation where truckers just don’t have enough power to pick up containers within the designated time. We have had some truckers advise that they do not have availability until the middle of January.
I wish I had better news to provide leading up to the holiday season, but terminal congestion continues to worsen.
