An expanding percentage of shippers within the Australia/New Zealand to U.S. container industry are transferring cargoes intermodally by means of a U.S. West Coast port, Australia-New Zealand Direct Line reported.

   Containerized volumes that transfer West to East, by means of an intermodal community, have greater via 15 p.c since 1995, from 53 p.c to 68 p.c of the northbound industry, ANZDL mentioned.

   Steven Blowers, ANZDL’s basic supervisor liable for imports, mentioned uploading by means of the West Coast of North The us was once turning into “increasingly more horny” for wine importers. ANZDL runs an Australia/New Zealand carrier to and from the U.S. West Coast. In contrast to a few of its competition, it does no longer function an all-water U.S. East Coast carrier.

   “Perceptions that the East Coast is less expensive and more secure are being counteracted via quicker transit instances and efficient and secure strategies of transporting shipment intermodally for enormous producers,” Blowers mentioned.

   As an example, ANZDL mentioned that the northbound transit time to Houston takes 28 days with ANZDL’s U.S. West Coast carrier, in comparison to 41 days when transport by means of the East Coast. If the distributor calls for the supply of 1 container every week, the exporter will save a 3rd on stock prices via transport by means of the West Coast with ANZDL, the provider mentioned.

   ANZDL is a part of the Canadian-owned CP Ships crew.
