"K" Line No Longer Coming To Call

Global shipper drops a big stone in Portland's transPacific shipping access pond:

As many as 90 Portland longshoremen who service a "K" Line vessel each
week will lose that work, along with significant numbers of truck
drivers, warehouse workers and freight forwarders. Exporters who ship
everything from peas to compressed hay could lose sales.

And those are your ripples. Dominoes all down the "K"-line.

That route was only established last year, when things were doing well.

How's that globalism working out for y'alls?
