Here are updated operational conditions that are likely to affect the movement of active or upcoming shipments to the US.
Mexico – USA Cross Border Trucking
Border crossings in Texas have been facing delays as a result over new required security measures. Last week commercial trucking queues were ranging between 7 to 30 hours at border crossings. Texas Governor Abbott ended these increased inspections, but residual delays are expected as a result of the backlog.
France – Congestion at Le Havre
Technical difficulties are being reported at the TN terminal at Le Havre, the terminal that Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) operates out of. This has created long queues for truckers trying to deliver to the terminal and corresponding wait times. This will impact waiting time costs and possible missed vessel cutoffs.
Oceania – Port Congestion Update
If you have shipments from Australia and New Zealand, vessel service changes and equipment supply will impact scheduled services. More in-depth information on this trade lane has been shared here.
