Union Pacific Pauses West Coast to Chicago Rail Traffic

Intermodal container congestion and delays seem destined to get worse before it gets better. Union Pacific has announced that “it will halt all shipments of international containers from West Coast ports to its Global IV terminal in Chicago for up to a week.”
 
This report from Trains.com says Union Pacific is taking this action to give its Chicago terminal time to catch up on a backlog of containers there.
 
This report from InsideTransport.com says the suspension will begin at “11:59 pm PDT July 18.”
 
We will monitor this situation and keep our Clients informed of further developments.
