Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach Already Losing Work From Strikes

The clerical workers’ strike at 10 terminals at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach has already resulted in lost work for Southern California supply chain employees, as shipping companies have started diverting cargo calls to other ports, the Los Angeles Times reported.

One container ship laden with goods to be imported into the U.S. was diverted to Oakland, a second ship bound for San Pedro Bay was diverted to a Mexican port and three more container ships that were expected to arrive are presumed to have called elsewhere, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California, which monitors local ship movements.
