CONGESTION AND JAN BRADY

November, 2014

PORT OF OAKLAND PROTESTAdmittedly, those of us serving the Port of Oakland are feeling a bit like Jan Brady, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia,” because all the trade publications talk about is “LA/Long Beach, LA/Long Beach, LA/Long Beach.” No doubt, the Southern California port complex is at near meltdown, and maybe we should be appreciative of the light being shone on the lack of terminal productivity and the abhorrent truck turn times. Still, we can’t help but think…Welcome to our world. Oakland has been plagued by these delays for nearly a year and half.
