WASHINGTON, D.C. – The flow of southbound international traffic is beginning to resume, except to the area defined as the northeastern U.S., which stretches from Virginia to New England.
Customs and U.S. Immigration, as well as other industry officials, say traffic is now moving in both directions, albeit slowly.
Many fleets with shipments heading towards the northeastern U.S. have begun to reroute freight. A great deal of these loads will be held in Toronto by the respective fleets until such time as it is reasonable for the shipments to be delivered.
This will likely create a prolonged logjam at the nearby border crossing facilities, even once all restrictions have been lifted.
