The Hyundai Bangkok and the Hyundai Splendor, set to arrive on the US West Coast in early October, will now berth at the Trapac and YTI terminals, respectively.

This was the most recent move made to reduce volume strains and "ease the current hectic terminal situation" at the Port of Los Angeles, said member of THE Alliance, ONE, in a notice to customers on Sept. 29.

The Port of Los Angeles posted a record high container volume in August as strong US demand for consumer goods sharply increased shipping rates.

The port has ongoing operational issues as a result of increased import demand on the trans-Pacific lane and equipment shortages throughout the Pacific Southwest.

Total throughput at the port in August was 961,833 twenty-foot equivalent units, up 12% from the same month last year, the port announced on Sept. 15.

THE Alliance, the smallest of the three container shipping alliances, has a combined capacity of 3.67 million TEUs. ONE is a member along with Hapag-Lloyd, HMM, and Yang Ming Marine.
