Update on Moves to and Domestic Empty Returns for Los Angeles and Long Beach.

7 January 2015

Happy New Year!

RBC’s two CYs in Long Beach, OnLine and Universal Warehouse (ULS),  continue to struggle with capacity issues.  Please contact them to see if they can accept empty containers prior to taking any domestic empty returns back to these CYs.

RBC will continue to reimburse IMCs $100 including fuel for empty containers brought back to the Port.  Please email our Chicago Transportation Center (CTC) with the container number, date and location where the empty container was returned.  CTC will respond with a  work order including a Dispatch Order number to include on your invoice for $100 that should be emailed to Invoice_due@us.kline.com.

RBC was notified that OnLine CY in Long Beach is accepting domestic empty returns.  Our other CY, ULS,  is occasionally able to accept empty returns.  If you want to try and drop at ULS instead of OnLine, please call ULS prior to sending a truck there to ensure ULS can accept the empty container.  ULS and OnLine’s phone numbers are listed below.

4 December 2014

Long Beach: ULS in Long Beach has generated a bit of space and has opened to receive domestic empty returns today. If conditions change, we will send out another notice.

 

1 December 2014

LAX/Long Beach: LA/Long Beach remain congested and our two CYs, ULS and OnLine, are still not accepting new empty returns. Today empty containers should be returned to PCT during the day shift and to ITS during the night shift. Each day RBC will update where the empties should be returned and you can find a link to this information on the first page of the Rail-Bridge Logistics website under Opportunities on the right hand side. As soon as our CYs are able to accept new domestic empties, I will send out an update. In the interim, RBC will continue to reimburse IMCs $100 including fuel for containers that are returned to ITS or PCT. Please forward the container number and date of return to our Chicago Transportation Center (CTC) via email and they will set you up for the $100. Please do NOT cut RBC's invoice for the linehaul as we need to keep this accounting separate.

 

22 November 2014

ULS and OnLine remain closed to inbound domestic empty returns due to severe congestion. Please return empty containers to ITS or PCT. RBC will compensate IMCs $100 including fuel for any domestic empty returns brought to ITS or PCT. Please select here to contact our Chicago Transportation Center (CTC) via email with the container number and return date.

21 November 2014
Due to extreme congestion in the Ports of LA and Long Beach, ULS and OnLine are continually struggling to drain empty
containers from their yards. RBC was informed that <strong>both ULS and OnLine are full and are not receiving empty containers</strong>.
Please direct your shippers to return empty containers to ITS or PCT. We will revert back when the CYs re-open.
RBC will compensate IMCs $100 including fuel for any domestic empty returns brought to ITS or PCT.
