Alert: Industrial Action affecting goods from U.S. West Coast

A long-standing industrial dispute between the PMA and ILWU is impacting imports and exports out of ports at Long Beach and Los Angeles.  Container clearing has slowed significantly due to the reduction of qualified crane operators provided by the ILWU.  The congestion in the terminals is near gridlock.

If any of our customers are affected or have goods to be collected from these ports, please contact Clarke Global Logistics on 9854 3000, to make alternative arrangements or to organise the re-direction of urgent goods, otherwise delays are to be expected.
