U.S. West Port Update- Tentative Agreement Reached

24 Feb, 2015 & Posted by : Admin

A tentative agreement has been made between Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU).

The nine-month dispute has shown disruption to vessel schedules along the West Coast, causing a trickle of consequences to many including carriers, shippers, importers, and end users. Delay is to be expected at the ports as the cargo backlog is attended to. The contract us up for renewal in five years.
