Here is the update on the U.S. market from our last update:

U.S. Market Overview:

Despite the international demand reduction, chassis and equipment shortage remains the key issue at ports and rail yards alike. Manufacturers are reporting a lack of labor and parts to keep up with demand to resolve the year-long issues in the U.S.

As import demands continue to soften, vessels at anchor have decreased at most ports. Houston continues to see challenges. A finalized contract between ILWU and Pacific Maritime Association is expected in the coming weeks. With confidence, WC ports will avoid union strikes, and volume is expected to shift back to WC terminals.

USWC: Rates to USWC continue to decline. Vessels at dwell saw an increase due to rail congestion and challenges transferring freight from terminal to train. Ports now reporting transfer from the terminal to rail is roughly 11 days per container.

USEC: Vessels off EC ports saw a decline. On-dock times for export containers increased inspiring ports to pressure carriers to expedite vessel loading to prevent container congestion.

USMW: Chassis equipment shortages continue to plague rail terminals. Congestion levels remain high, furthered by challenges transferring freight to rail.

USSW: Vessels at dwell in Houston continue to increase. Chassis shortages in the area continue to exacerbate container backlogs. However, local rail depots saw alleviated congestion conditions with increased driver availabilities.
