A lot of you might be wondering why your boxes haven’t been received by your relatives in the Philippines? It’s already more than a month.
The main reason for delays which are now typically averaging 2 – 4 weeks is because of the Heavy Arrival of Import Cargoes mainly USWC Ports LA/LGB / OAK as well as NYC the Unions handling the Port. They have done a very poor job of unloading a shipment. Typically a vessel is discharged in 2 days and leaves the Port. Now, the present discharging of vessels is taking 5-7 days volume of cargo as well with the Lack of Longshoremen support causing additional work shifts as a result the Vessels unable to keep up on their schedules. As such their arrivals and sailings are seriously affected that this problem will last for several more months. To make a simple analogy if you have a conveyor belt and get clogged up, the effect will be a slow process to pick up your product off the product Line.
The FMC and the carriers are deciding if they can avoid LA/LGB and Oakland and start dropping off boxes in Seattle or Tacoma . It is a mess and because they reduced their space capacity and favor shipping Empty export Boxes to China overloaded containers to the Far East because they have inventory shortages more problems have occurred as of yesterday. I know 2 of the major Lines have decided shipping to the Philippines all together luckily it’s not one that I support.
Hope this helps you understand the shipping line delays. The winter storms in the Midwest and the East Coast are even going to complicate things further as it delays Inland Moves In and Out of the Port of the West Coast. You can simply google US West Coast Congestions https://www.ttnews.com/articles/ports-continue-set-records-congestion-worsens-west-coast
and you will see the Fruits produce Industry is suffering big time. A Fruit Lifespan is typically 3 weeks on a vessel but ships are delayed by 6-8 weeks meaning spoiled fruit by the time it reaches the Import Markets worldwide.
The same is true in our Manila port. We are experiencing delays due to the triggering of shipments to the computer system of Customs to avoid much contact on Customs personnel thereby also making a week delay in the processing and logistics to release the shipment.
Bayanihan Cargo is doing its utmost best to release and protect the shipment the earliest time. Though a lot of constraints does occur during the process and is asking your understanding as we work on the situation we are facing. Rest assured that delivery of your boxes secured and protected is our number one priority. Maraming salamat po!
