Rail-Bridge Domestic Update on the West Coast
Oakland Domestic Empty Returns

July 13, 2015

While Oakland seems to be making some progress, the Port of Oakland remains fairly congested.  RBC wants to ensure that we minimize any delays to your cargo.  The lines at SSA/OICT  are shorter than PAOH and we can get a better turn on the chassis there.  Please have your truckers return their empty containers to SSA and the bare chassis back to UP.  RBC will reimburse $70 for the chassis split. Please send in-gate receipts to chibctc@us.kline.com for reimbursement. The release for the chassis out of SSA is KAM2015.  We anticipate keeping this in place for this week and next.

Seattle Domestic Empty Returns:

July 28, 2015

Seattle: Seattle remains tight on chassis due to the large inbound domestic volume. There are currently over 300 loads on chassis in the terminal or on the street. Please pick up, unload and return these as soon as possible to make chassis for the containers that are currently grounded.

If you use your own chassis, please note that you must return the container to T46 in Seattle, OCT in Tacoma or Husky in Tacoma as Savannah CY does not have lift capabilities.

Please continue to pick up your loads, empty the containers and return them to Savannah yard as quickly as possible. Domestic volume into Seattle remains very high and the faster we can turn equipment, the fewer operational issues (congestion at UP, chassis shortages, etc.) we will encounter.
