USWC Ports Current Status Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle, Tacoma

With the recent PMA lock out on the ILWU this weekend we provide a general overview of the current USWC Port Status from our partner.

Port of Los Angeles / Long Beach

  • 20+ vessels anchored
  • 7-14 day delay at berth over T/T ETA
  • 5+ day delay at the terminal
  • T/T is only a reference now
  • Longer T/T implies carriers need to put more capacity/vessels to maintain weekly service
  • Since more capacity and equipment is on water there is increased pressure on equipment shortage at terminals

Port of Oakland

  • Carriers continue to drop calling Port of Oakland  due to congestion
  • 20+ day delay at berth over T/T ETA
  • 7+ day delay at terminal
  • MSK + CMA already announced all Oakland shipments will be terminated in LA/LB at the CNEEs’ expense
  • Other carriers should be announcing the same soon
  • Evergreen TPS / CPS still calls Oakland along with a few G6 strings
  • Space very tight

Port of Seattle / Tacoma

  • 24 day average delay for shipments
  • Seattle / Tacoma is now the last call on PNW strings
  • IPI shipments now switching to Canada

Port of Portland

  • Hanjin announced Portland service termination and they were the only vessels calling Port of Portland
  • Only option now is to Rail from Seattle / Tacoma using K Line, Cosco, Maersk, or CMA
