Los Angeles Port Congestion
Please note there is still severe port congestion at Los Angeles terminals and Long Beach port, which is now at record levels. This is causing significant delays for truckers to collect empty containers, and also return full containers. Trucking companies are reporting a decline in productivity and as a result, truckers are heavily overbooked so there may be delays organising loads. In addition to this, carriers and terminals are not always extending free time on equipment, so there is a possibility demurrage charges and waiting time may be applicable. In the event of any additional costs, Mondiale will contact customers directly as affected.
We will continue to work with our USA agent and trucking network to minimise disruption wherever possible. Please contact your Mondiale representative if you require further information.
