Since signing of its new six-year contract in 2018, the management of the International Longshoremen’s Agreement, which serves U.S. East and Gulf Coast ports, has vowed to increase container moves to over 30 moves an hour, and perhaps even higher in some ports. Speeding up fluidity to such a degree, would mean that the production rate “far better than any robot or equipment would” be able to attain, said an ILA management.  Their goal is an agreement that spares cargo interests an experience such as the one they endured during the epic 2012-13 bargaining between the ILA and United States Maritime Alliance. Those negotiations yielded a six-year contract, but only after nearly a year of rocky negotiations and repeated strike threats.
