Supply glut is worsening at the Port of Los Angeles despite Joe Biden’s attempts to ensure 24/7 operations at the port. According to new reports, around 169 cargo ships are anchored off the coast of Los Angeles and are trying to unload. This is up from 100 ships two weeks ago.
This comes as the Port of Los Angeles decided to impose fines on carriers who take too long to offload amid labor shortages and a lack of trucks. Business owners say large corporations are benefiting from this bottleneck while small distributors are being pushed out of business.
