2M Alliance Takes New Measures To Alleviate Congestion In US West Ports

On March 15, 2M alliance members Maersk and Mediterranean Shipping announced that they would launch a new trans-Pacific weekly route TP23/ Palmetto, which will be implemented from May, and the specific time will be announced separately.

The 2M Alliance stated that the new route will replace the previous temporary solution and ease the congestion at the ports on the west coast of the United States by calling at ports on the east coast of the United States.

Severe congestion at the US West Port has been going on for some time. Ships arriving at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have to wait up to 2 weeks at the San Pedro Bay anchorage, which also caused serious delays in the shipping schedule.

However, recently, due to the rerouting of some routes, the ports of Seattle and Tacoma in the northwestern United States have been diverted, and some ships have been diverted. The congestion of the West US ports has eased, but there are still double-digit ships waiting to unload.

Simon Sundboell, the founder and CEO of industry data analysis company eeSea, said that the long-term congestion at the US West Port "does not seem to be alleviated and is affecting the entire shipping system."
