Several logistics providers are warning customers of missed truck appointments and other disruptions ahead of Easter weekend.

Terminals at the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach effectively shut down due to a lack of labor starting Thursday evening.

Ports, trucking groups, shipping lines and terminal operators have reported widespread terminal closures at the twin ports. The closures continued throughout Friday, according to several stakeholders.

Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero said in a statement four of the port’s container terminals are closed for the full day, noting that terminal operators shut down after workers did not report for the day.
