Return to normal operations in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach Ship’s crew

By Laura Curtis (Bloomberg) —

Normal operations resumed at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach as longshoremen returned to the container terminals for the Friday evening shift.

“Here we go,” said Alan McCorkle, chief executive officer of Yusen Terminals LLC in the Port of Los Angeles. “The work shows up.”

Due to the labor shortage, the container terminals were closed on Thursday evening and Friday morning. The impact of the closures on cargo flow has been limited due to low volume, although a container ship scheduled to go to a berth today was delayed and loitered offshore, according to Kip Louttit, executive director of the Marine Exchange of Southern California, which is managing traffic monitored in the two west coast ports.

Louttit previously advised shipping companies to work with destination terminals “to determine if your ship has a reasonable expectation of going to a berth in the next three days.”
