Port updates
Area Country Port Update
North America US New York / New Jersey 16 Nov 2022 - Vessel waiting time average 2 days for APM terminal and PNCT terminal. There are chassis shortages, severe congestion, and lack of available gensets. Export delivery dates are delayed and hold up chassis equipment. Chassis units cannot be re-used for new container collection when empty container receiving is not available due to lack of space. Warehousing and distribution centers for wine and spirits are at capacity and are only able to give appointments in some cases 3-6 weeks out. This prevents carriers from picking up inbound containers before last free day and subsequent demurrage or additional storage costs.
