Vessel Updates

  • Maersk Missouri (transatlantic service) is currently 5.5 days late, due to vessel collision repairs in Bremerhaven, and a further delay is due to weather en route to Newark along with berth congestion in Savannah
  • Maersk Atlanta (Middle Eastern service) will be 1.5 days delayed due to a late departure from Algeciras and weather in the Atlantic, combined with berth congestion in Charleston and Savannah
  • Victoria Bridge (transpacific service) is held up in Oakland due to a hazardous spill and clean-up that occurred last week; current ETD is today, Wednesday, at noon PST; vessel will still call Dutch Harbor but will omit the first Busan call for schedule recovery

Weather Effects

Update 11 – February 25, 2014 / 1623 hrs (04:23pm):

Terminal:

  • APMT Newark terminal is still experiencing heavy delays on the rail operations, however they are actively working with MMR to reduce the rail cargo and will continue to work overtime to clear it

Vessel:

  • Maersk Idaho (MECL2 Service) will arrive Houston at 1900 hrs (07:00pm); delay is due to the fog, however vessel is currently scheduled on time into Algeciras

Rail:

  • Due to local festivities associated with Mardi Gras, CSX terminals in New Orleans and Mobile will be closed on Tuesday, March 4 and will reopen on Wednesday, March 5 with regular hours
  • The Chicago gateway is improving but still described as “sluggish” by CSX Network Operations; they are slowly getting back to normal operations as the weather conditions improve
  • With improving weather conditions across the network, BNSF is seeing subsequent improvements at the rail and hub operations, which is allowing progress in clearing the cargo congestion
  • The CN is continuing to focus on clearing congestion at the Chicago and Toronto terminals, however delays may still occur; operations at both Chicago and Toronto terminals have additonal staff on hand to continue to flow freight through the terminals

Truck:

  • Truck power and capacity continues to be tight in areas like Newark and the South Atlantic as they are still recovering from the winter storms over the last few weeks
  • The South Atlantic is expected to be caught up in the next few days, however the Newark area could take a few more weeks before recovery is achieved
