(SR 300) Talking Freight - The Impacts of Temporary U.S. Port Closures on International Supply Chain
1/23/2013 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST
In recent months various natural and human-induced events have forced the temporary closures of some or all the facilities at some major U.S. ports, including Los Angeles, Long Beach, and New York-New Jersey, and may create closures at all U.S. East and Gulf Coast ports due to the possible International Longshoreman Association (ILA) strike. These temporary port closures have a negative impact on not only the regional economies where the ports are located, but the U.S. national economy by undermining supply chain efficiency. This webinar will examine in greater detail the challenges ports face when they experience a short-term closure and the impacts short-term port closures have on international supply chains and the U.S. economy.
