After months of ocean carriers by-passing the Port of Oakland, the backlog of ships is nonexistent.

The previous labor shortages are dissipating. The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) has brought on 1,000 new casual members and has promoted 150 casuals to Class B members and 150 Class B members to Class A.

SSA’s new giant cranes are up.

So, now what? Do we trudge along heading towards obscurity while even Portland gains traction?

We are hopeful the pendulum is swinging in a more favorable direction. The Port of Oakland announced the port’s fourth direct port of call. In addition to CMA-CGM, Matson and Wan Hai, MSC is adding a direct port of call into Oakland. Their service will be a Southeast Asia rotation and is welcomed news to exporters and importers utilizing the Port of Oakland.
