SEE BOTTOM FOR UPDATE ON SHIPS IN HOUSTON HARBOR-WORLD TRADE COMING TO VIRTUAL STAND STILL!SOME TRUCKERS STUCK FOR A WEEK AT A TIME FOR PRODUCT TO HAUL-WHEN THE TRUCKS STOP RUNNING, SO DO AMERICAN HOUSEHOLDS
I import from China and I just received a container of products. I personally know the delivery driver.
We had a considerable delay because he had to drive 65 miles to get a container chassis from Maersk Line. This is unheard of because they always have a lot of chassis at the Chicago rail head. I asked him what was up because it is not peak volume time for anyone.
The delivery driver is part of a company that also imports a lot of products. I asked if they were experiencing any shipping problems out of China (because we have had issues). He said they had a container waiting for 7 weeks because Maersk had cancelled 35 sailings. I know the world economy is bad but 35 sailings is a lot.
Keep up the good work. God Bless and protect you and your family----SECOND REPORT--Steve, I have a Trucking Company currently running 7 trucks. The rates out
here are half of what they were a year ago. Not going to be around much
longer if things keep going the way that they are.
(Also, friend of a neighbor sitting in Houston, TX for last 5 days and says
there is not a single ship in port. I can't verify this myself. Thanks
Philip.) SQ-COULD SOMEONE IN HOUSTON, VERIFY NO SHIPS IN PORT REPORT? ANY PHOTOS WOULD BE APPRECIATED; SQ- CONCERNING INFO ABOUT NO SHIPS IN HOUSTON, THIS IS NOT ACCURATE AT THIS POINT-THERE ARE 11 SHIPS CURRENTLY IN HOUSTON AS OF 2: 2 0PM MST-THANK YOU DEB-STEVE
