None of the carriers have announced plans for a congestion surcharge but it is expected that additional surcharges will be levied.

We would like to prepare you for what the situation will be when the piers do reopen:

The free time for containers caught at the terminals during the strike may or may not be extended. 
 
Empty containers that are out and cannot be returned due to the strike will most likely incur per diem charges which will be billed by your trucker after the empties are returned.

Once the strike ends and the terminals are working, expect delays. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to have a more detailed update later today.

If you have any questions please contact us at 305-471-8989.  
 
Thank you for your continued support,
