An export rebound continues to build steam at the Port of Oakland, as it also continues to ease drayage congestion with innovative logistics management strategies.

Asset-light transportation and logistics services provider Roadrunner Transportation Systems Inc. (RRTS) said this week it has expanded its less-than-truckload (LTL) service through the addition of outbound service from Vancouver, British Columbia. RRTS said that this service will open the western half of Canada to its LTL Freight’s outbound service.

Carloads saw a 16.1 percent, or 180,598, annual decline at 944,339, and intermodal containers and trailers in April at 1,972,828, were off 11.8 percent or 264,327 carloads annually.

Total intermodal volume movements—at 4,156,999—were up 2.0 percent annually and outpaced the 0.3 percent annual growth rate from the fourth quarter of 2015.

Industry analysts contend that the Teamsters are not declaring a strike outright, but rather, voting to give their leadership permission for such an action.
