Shippers, truckers & forwarders would benefit from the intenational ports fixing their congestion problems. In effect, drivers going to the ports at 4 AM in the morning to retrieve their truck chassis & ocean containers from the union workers handling the terminals find themeselves waiting for hours or longer in idle.
New York port experienced congestions frustrating shippers, truckers & forwarders alike since June 2013 through the summer. Drivers waiting before the gate unable to access the equipments booked by the forwarders with the steam lines for specific vessels that need to be timely loaded.
The New York port of Authority & the Shipping Association are searching for ways to keep it from happening again. Apparently, Shiipers on the East Coast feel that when the West Coast ports (Los Angeles / Long Beach) experienced congestions, they bounced back faster.
This idle time costs to the drayage, shipping & forwarding industries massive losses, disrupting deliveries & re-ordering, which ulimately affects the manufacturing & distribution aspects. Congestions at the ports are impacting negatively the working force in an already difficult job market. Ocean importers & exporters along with the freight forwarders ought to contact their congressman & woman to address this debilidating state of the union workers and aging terminal infrastructures.
Motor carriers (truckers) have long complained about terminal services & unpredictable turn times. Shippers, forwarders over paying for delays.
The ILA members (Union workers) say these allegations are nonsense. the ILA workers agree to move a certain number of containers per hour. Drivers refused to speak for attribution, they feared retaliation.
