Long truck waits on Monday at NY-NJ’s APM terminal

Trucks continued to face delays on Monday at the APM Terminals in the Port of New York and New Jersey, with truckers sometimes being processed with paper documents, reports Journal of Commerce.

A cyberattack last week forced parent company Maersk Group temporarily to shut down the facility. It reopened on Friday solely for import containers and operated for eight hours on Saturday. It planned on Monday to operate for 13 hours rather than the normal nine-and-a- half to try to help truckers extract or deliver cargo before the July 4th holiday. On Monday the terminal told the drayage community that there were 11 ships it expected to handle cargo for Monday, and that it would accept import and export cargo, but not empty containers. The terminal also asked truckers to come with paper dock receipts for exports, which contain details of a shipment.
