To Our Customers,
As a result of the current strike actions initiated by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU)/Office Clerical Unit (OCU) at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the majority of piers are unable to accept inbound and outbound rail car shipments from Union Pacific.
Therefore, we have issued an embargo for all international traffic destined to our International Container Transfer Facility (ICTF) at Long Beach, California and all On Dock locations at both Los Angeles and Long Beach with the exception of TraPac, Pier A and PCT Terminals. Additionally, limited drayage is occurring between ICTF and the Piers. Domestic ISO container reload traffic destined to ICTF will be allowed to move normally.
Please refer to the embargo section of the Union Pacific website for additional information. We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.If you have any questions please contact your Union Pacific representative.
