APL Turkey (V040) and OOCL Italy (V048)
Please be advised that the OOCL Italy (voyage 048) has secured a berth at APL’s Global Gateway South (GGS) terminal in the Port of Los Angeles. Her scheduled berthing was on Dec 2, 2014.
In order to accommodate the already delayed arrival of the OOCL Italy, and in recognition of the terminal closures associated with the monthly ILWU “Stop Work” meeting on Thursday, Dec 4, 2014, there will be a change to the eastbound port call for the APL Turkey (voyage 040) in the Southeast Asia 1 (SE1) service. This vessel will now omit the Los Angeles eastbound call and sail directly to Mexico. The APL Turkey is planned to return to GGS in Los Angeles to discharge the inbound cargo on Friday afternoon, Dec 12, 2014.
While we recognize any delay to cargo is not optimum, given the congestion issues throughout the Los Angeles/Long Beach port complex, we are hopeful that the above vessel berthing schedule will enable GGS to remain fluid and provide the best access to your shipments.
