Italian Strike and Delays: Port terminal labor unions at Livorno port are striking this week (September 15th through September 22nd) after negotiations broke down. This is a limited strike of 2 hours at the end of each work shift.
We expect additional gate congestion and operational slowdowns for containers at the terminals.
NY Port Update: PNCT is now down to a 1-2 week delay, a week less than the prior worst-case scenario. APM is now up to a week. Some New York metro 3PLs are now reporting up to 4 week delays, however FDL & Gordon’s continue to weather the storm with little impact to Elenteny’s operations.
