March 30, 2023


How are West Coast ports doing in terms of share of total US container volumes?


In a couple of wordd: not good.

What's going on? Many factors, but fears of strikes and lockdowns - more common on the West Coast than East Coast it seems -is certainly one concern for shippers, and causes many to diversify to the East and Gulf coasts, in a trend that seems likely continue.
