California Ports to Operate 24/7 in Effort to Ease Shipping Bottlenecks, Supply Shortages

The Port of Los Angeles is on its way to become a 24-7 operation, the White House said in Wednesday in an announcement of a new agreement to relieve supply chain bottlenecks and move stranded container ships increasing consumer prices in the U.S.

The supply chain issue is closely related to recent inflation, which is creating economic and political risks for elected officials. President Joe Biden is scheduled to outline an agreement in an afternoon speech about how supply chain issues have affected the nation’s economic COVID-19 recovery.

As of Monday, 62 ships were berthed at the ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, which make up 40 percent of all shipping containers in the U.S. More than 80 ships are still waiting to dock and unload, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California.
