Los Angeles Ports at Risk of Closure due to Covid Outbreak

Due to a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases amongst workers at Los Angeles and Long Beach Ports (close to 700 are currently affected, with many more self-isolating), there is a realistic threat of closure of both facilities.

The Ports are still suffering major challenges as a result of severe port congestion, so this threat of closure would have serious consequences to inbound and outbound services.

Horizon International’s Los Angeles team are continuing to monitor the situation and support clients to navigate these challenges and provide contingency options.

If you should have any concerns regarding your shipments in or out of Los Angeles or Long Beach, please contact us –
