It is part of Alba’s mission to proactively notify the importing community and our customers when market issues could impact your supply chain. We need to make you aware of the following US West Coast port conditions outlined in the attached coalition letter written by the Harbor Trucking Association. The letter outlines conditions impacting the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. These port challenges may result in extra per diem, detention and demurrage costs.
Attached is the West Coalition Letter to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, signed by many West Coast stakeholders, the Pacific Coast Council of Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders, the Agriculture Transport Coalition, and others, suggesting specific courses of action to address the chassis shortage, the appointment system and blank sailings.
Alba has been part of these discussions and have been active in trying to solve the problem and remains diligent in assisting our importers navigate thought these challenging conditions.
