Los Angeles and Long Beach Terminal Congestions

OCTOBER 29, 2014
Robinson and other Beneficial Cargo Owners (BCOs) participated to ensure that customers’ voices are heard. Due to the heavy influx of cargo and issues downstream, the containers continue to be stacked making it difficult for the terminals to release the older containers. However, it is feared that a similar situation in Los Angeles will be created if there is significant change in volume to alternate ports. Anticipate congestion for future peak shipping periods.
