For the second time in less than a week, the PMA imposed a partial shutdown of operations at all 29 West Coast ports on Thursday (2/12). The organization also announced that the loading and unloading of vessels will also be suspended over the weekend (2/14-15) and through Monday (2/16).
Note, other operations at the ports, including the loading of containers on to trucks, will still be in operation. The situation is ongoing and very fragile as both sides of the dispute ramp up rhetoric and threats of worker lockouts and strikes. Our international team of experts are constantly monitoring the situation and working with customers to identify solutions.
