Shippers could face delays in retrieving containers moving through West Coast ports over the next few weeks.
MIQ Logistics issued an alert Tuesday saying, “U.S. West Coast ports, specifically Los Angeles and Long Beach terminals, have received unprecedented volumes and are experiencing extreme congestion leading up to the Lunar New Year. Containers are reportedly sitting longer than normal, and once the containers are out-gated, many are staying out longer than normal. These delays are also contributing to chassis shortages in the area.”
