15 Jun USA: Ports congestion due to shortage of land transport
or weeks, U. S. exports and imports have been affected by the scarcity of land transportation within the country. The hurricane season, a harsher than usual winter and the new ELD law that monitors truck drivers’ driving hours have been crucial to this situation.
The east coast of the United States and the gulf are currently the areas most affected by the scarcity of trucks, but there is a lack of land transportation services throughout the country.
We recommend that you schedule your operations with the U. S. market in advance, taking into account that the expected delivery times are likely to be extended, as well as an increase associated with the service costs that are already being announced by major shipping companies operating with U. S. ports.
