OPERATIONS UPDATES – COVID-19

WEEKLY OPERATIONS UPDATE – MONDAY 01/11/2021

  • As the economy and import volume has rebounded, TRAC Intermodal has been extremely responsive, aggressively adding incremental fleet along with reducing out-of-service inventories. TRAC continues to focus on key pinch point markets, particularly after the recent back-to-back four-day holiday weekends. In the Northeast (Baltimore and NY/NJ) and the Midwest (Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit and Pittsburgh), for instance, demand remains high – resulting in ongoing issues around tight capacity. The Mountain area (Denver and Omaha) and the West (LA/LB and Oakland) are also areas of concern. This continues to be a very dynamic and evolving market and TRAC remains focused on turning equipment as quickly as possible to meet commercial demand and minimize import-export supply chain interruptions.
  • The flow of goods into and out of the U.S. ports reached historic levels late last year. Both Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach had a record breaking September, processing 13.3% and 12.5% more volume respectively. The NY/NJ port set a monthly container record in August with 688,365 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). It then broke that record in September by handling 720,969 TEUs, a 15.4% year-over-year increase.
  • Port officials attribute the record months to both replenishment of warehouse and distribution center inventories along with retailers prepping for year-end holidays. However, uncertainty remains in international trade and the national economy, given the anticipated fall COVID-19 surge.
  • TRAC’s field operations continue to serve customers in all markets. In addition, our office employees are equipped to seamlessly support our customers and service partners via phone or email in a secure and productive environment, while working remotely.
