truck-queueJust when you see a light at the end of the long congestion-tunnel, BAM, the lights go out.  This time, it is TraPac that is leading to the long truck turn times in Oakland.

TraPac’s increased volumes have had a negative impact on queues and terminal transaction times. They are working to alleviate the congestion, but it will not be an immediate fix.  As we know, there are no quick fixes to congestion.  Here are some of the initiatives and plans TraPac has in place and the timeline for implementation:

Before the end of the year:
