Warning: this article is just over eight years old, but it is a fascinating, in-depth analysis of how US computer manufacturer Dell prepared for the 2002 west coast lock-out, which lasted for 10 days. Given the disruption caused by the eight-day LA-Long Beach container terminal strike that ended today, as well as the impending disruption that could be on the cards if the east and Gulf coast dockers strike at the beginning of next year, this is something of a must-read for those delivering cargo into the world’s largest economy.
