Shipments are being impacted in New York City, Elizabeth, Newark and Jersey City.
The Port Authority of NY/NJ has asked carriers not to queue on nearby roadways or even send trucks to the affected terminals. The Port Authority has stated they are making every effort to resume normal operations as soon as possible.
The Port Authority also released a statement, in which it said, “As the agency that oversees the largest port complex on the East Coast, we strongly urge the ILA members to return to work immediately and resolve their differences after they return. In the meantime, Port Authority Police are actively working to ensure public safety for all of the stakeholders at the port.”
