U.S. West Coast Ports could shut down soon

 We have unconfirmed sources stating there is a good chance that

the U.S. West Coast Ports could shut down soon.

 

 What this means for your cargo? 

If either a lockout or strike occurs, we believe a 60 day cooling off period will be invoked, which will allow cargo to keep moving through the ports albeit with delays.

 What kind delay should we expect?

Scarbrough suspects the delays will be similar to that of the current cargo situation over the last 30 days.

Scarbrough will continue to monitor the situation as it continues to unfold.  Please keep connected via our website blog for the most up-to-date information.  Stay tuned.
