Port Spotlight: Port of Seattle and Port of Tacoma

Husky Terminal: Husky Terminal has been very strict with appointments in the last few weeks. They prohibit drivers from lining up before their appointment window. Husky will be banning any offenders for 2 days if caught. This will be the driver and possibly the trucking company!

This has also greatly reduced standby times down from 4-6 hours to maybe 2 hours, but it has been improving each week.

WUT Terminal: Has been backed up lately. They are starting to enforce appointments as well. Hopefully, this will reduce standby times like the Husky was able to do.

Terminal 5 and18: Still open 4 days a week, however our drivers are still in/out fairly quick. Getting peel piles there is what makes everything much faster. The Terminals really want peel piles, so they work with you well even if you only have 5 containers coming in on a vessel. Terminal 18 closes Fridays and Terminal 5 is closed Mondays.
