Lots of news coming out today in the world of transportation. 800 longshoremen in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have received their first COVID-19 vaccinations. This will significantly help to reduce potential service reductions due to labor disruptions. Hopefully more states throughout the United States will follow suit and vaccinate their port and transportation workers.
With the severe weather that is affecting the majority of the country the Union Pacific Railroad will be closing most of their intermodal network due to snow and icy conditions. These conditions have affected transportation the Pacific Northwest, Midwest and as far south as Texas.
