So far today, all USWC have remained open. I was concerned about SSA Terminal in Oakland after it shut down yesterday for the second time in a week due to ILWU labor issues. Another concern that popped up earlier this week was rumor of a Teamster picket lines at Los Angeles/Long Beach terminals. A truck strike in Los Angeles/Long Beach would be the icing on the cake after all that has happened at the ports in recent months. Fortunately, we have not heard of any severe disruption due to Teamster action at the ports.
Congestion still remains a serious problem. All vessels are being significantly delayed coming through Los Angeles/Long Beach.
