Hong Kong port labor is on strike in 5 terminals which handles 70% of their container freight. This could seriously delay your cargo going to or coming from the Far East if settlement is not reached soon. I will keep you updated. Have a great Friday!

Contract negotiations between the ILA (International Longshoremen's Association) and the U.S. Maritime Alliance (USMX) have been extended twice since the September 30th, 2012, deadline with the latest contract expiration on February 6th. Negotiations between the parties are still underway. . USMX represents 14 container ports and the ILA represents 15,000 dock workers handling containerized, and roll-on and roll-off cargo operations at a majority of terminals on the U.S. East and Gulf Coast ports. A prolonged strike at affected locations would have a severe impact on freight movement to and from these ports, as well as all regions of the country.
 
In anticipation of significantly increased port congestion due to labor issues, carriers have announced congestion surcharges that will be applied on a per container basis. Dove shipping has also filed a congestion surcharge of $20 w/m to coincide with these carrier increases and take effect on February 6th.

ILA Strike Update * Still no resolution. On Jan.9, ILA officials walked out of what was to be two days of scheduled negotiations on a local contract for New York-New Jersey dockworkers after objecting to employers’ proposed changes. The two sides have until Feb. 6 to settle local issues and OK a new 6-year contract. ship lcl now or stall until Feb 7th!
