US: Companies comprising the informal Port of Alaska Users Group at Anchorage have requested that the local government delay plans for a US$220m petroleum and cement import terminal. The group, that includes fuel companies, are concerned that the project will incur tariffs that could damage their businesses, according to the Alaska Journal of Commerce newspaper. Costs for the proposed marine terminal have become uncertain due to damage caused to the site by an earthquake in late 2018. The group is made up of eight companies including Alaska Basic Industries, a cement distributor.
