Updated 30th January, 2023
The temporary ingate suspension across to Union Pacific facilities has now been lifted following the successful repair of the bridge in Santa Rosa, New Mexico.
Published 27th January, 2023
Union Pacific (UP) announced that trains travelling between LA and Midwest terminals, including the major inland hubs of Kansas City and Chicago, have been suspended until further notice, causing delays to domestic services passing through the region. Although the works on the line are due to be completed today (Friday, 27th January), it is expected that delays and disruption to services moving through the affected area will continue.
As of Wednesday, 25th January, terminals were still both accepting and releasing containers, however, capacity across UP’s terminals is limited. The reduced capacity has the potential to impact Woodland’s ability to return both export containers and empty import containers, which could lead to additional costs for customers.
As always, Woodland Group is doing everything possible to mitigate delays and additional costs and we will continue to provide necessary updates if there are any changes.
