Daily Vessel Report Now on Port Website
'Vessels at a Glance' shows steep drop in backup of ships
March 30, 2015
As part of efforts to alleviate congestion, increase transparency and improve supply chain efficiency, the Port of Long Beach has added a "Vessels at a Glance" page to the Port's website at www.polb.com/vesselsataglance. The section features a daily update showing all vessels at berth and anchor within the Port, as well as their arrival and departure dates and length of stay in Long Beach.
Also on the new page are charts updated weekly showing the number of vessels at anchor at both Los Angeles and Long Beach, which illustrate trends over the last six months.
As of Monday, March 30, the number of container ships at anchor for the two ports has dropped dramatically to 11, showing that the San Pedro Bay ports are catching up on the backlog of cargo. Just two weeks ago, on March 14, the ships at anchor peaked at 28.
"Vessels at a Glance" may also be reached directly through a button on the left side of the polb.com homepage or under the Trade section of the site.
