Also, private investment of up to $300 million will go toward upgrading and expanding the Howland Hook Marine Terminal at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANY/NJ).

Intermodal Briefs: Port of LA, ITS Logistics, Port of Long Beach (UPDATED July 14)

The Port of Los Angeles, Calf., reports that June volume is its “strongest in a year.” Also, ITS Logistics forecasts that the labor strike at the ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert will not only negatively impact Canada, but also will have a “severely negative impact” on the U.S. supply chain due to reconsigned freight; and the Port of Long Beach reports a slow June as industry volume stalls.

“We are still advising caution when conducting business on the west coast,” said Paul Brashier, Vice President of Drayage and Intermodal for ITS Logistics. “The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) and the Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) have agreed to some tentative terms, including automation, but more difficult negotiable topics surrounding benefits and pay have not yet been decided.” (Image from ITS Logistics' May U.S. Port/Rail Ramp Freight Index)

“Los Angeles and Long Beach ports make progress in [labor] negotiations, but empty returns and terminal operations are problematic,” reports ITS Logistics in its latest U.S. Port/Rail Ramp Freight Index. Also, the Utah Inland Port Authority (UIPA) completes a rebranding initiative.

The December forecast for the ITS Logistics U.S. Port/Rail Ramp Freight Index reflects “normal status at all U.S. port container dray operations, but a lack of ocean chassis availability at both the West and East Inland Rail Ramps raises alarm bells,” the Nevada-based third-party logistics (3PL) firm reported on Dec. 13.
