Groups Urge White House to Help End Strike At SoCal Ports; Federal Mediator Steps In

The letter said that some cargo destined for the two ports already has been diverted to Canada and Mexico, and that because of the strike:

• Exporters will fail to meet delivery times for their customers in the Far East;

• Exporters of perishable cargos have already been affected;

• Agricultural interests will have to divert production to domestic use, or freeze produce instead of shipping it fresh, thereby losing significant economic value;

• Retailers will be unable to get goods to their store shelves in a timely fashion; and,

• Importers, wholesalers, and U.S. consumer brands will face order cancellations if they cannot meet delivery dates.
