Please find below an update on current US port congestion:
Pacific North West
Current average dwell time as follows:
- WUT, 16 days rail dwell time average
- Husky Terminal, 7 days rail dwell average
- Seattle T18, 5 days rail dwell average
- Due to the wildfire that took place near Lytton, BC (near Vancouver), Deltaport is backlogged with rail cargo up to 8 days. However, the rail line re-opened earlier this week, and we expect the situation to improve
Port of Oakland
Both OCIT and Trapac terminals are averaging 4 days rail dwell time. However, now that carriers are steering clear of Oakland the number of ships waiting to berth is down to 12.
Port of Los Angeles / Long Beach
All terminals are averaging from 20 to 30 days of rail dwell.
The main difficulties facing the terminals are:
- GCT-BAYONNE (New Jersey) rail dwell of 7 days, GCT (New York) rail dwell of 7 days
- GPA (Savannah) is undergoing berth construction and currently has 9 vessels waiting for berth
- NIT/VIG (Norfolk) rail dwell of 6 days
- Houston facing biggest problems with rail dwell of 16 days, labour shortage (crane operators); tight on chassis caused by huge volumes
We continue to monitor the situation and will keep you updated. For any enquiries regarding specific bookings, please contact our Customer teams.
