Updated 15/10/2014 | Port Congestion Throughout North America

This situation has extended and is experienced throughout North America leading to increased pressure in key hubs.

The congestion is having a roll on effect and vessels are being overbooked with the backlog of containers needing to be loaded.

As shipping lines navigate through these challenges we are seeing vessel sailings being delayed.

We are expecting this congestion to ease over the next month but with the onset of the peak season we advise you to please place your bookings as early as possible.

Congestion at Los Angeles Ports | September 2014

The Los Angeles Ports are experiencing heavy congestion causing delivery challenges in and out of the ports. The source of the congestion has been the onset of the peak season, the launch of the G6 consortium and the ongoing construction at the Los Angeles / Long Beach ports.

As a result there has been:

  • Vessel sailings being delayed approx. 3 – 4 days
  • The terminal operation hours have been revised which is limiting pick up windows
  • The reduction of shipping line are also being experienced in many parts of the USA not just in the Los Angeles leading to congestion in key hubs.

We are working with the ports to ensure we navigate through these challenges, but in the meantime please place your bookings as early as possible so we can book timeslots effectively.

It may be worthwhile directing your cargo to alternative ports, contact our experienced and knowledgeable team to discuss options.

We appreciate your patience during this time and will be updating this page with any developments as it comes to hand. Should you have any queries or require additional insight, please call our team at any time.
