Container Ship Backup Containment November 11, 2021

Posted by geoff in News.

With the Biden administration on the job, there’s absolutely no reason to fret about the container ship backup at the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports:

Yup, no reason at all.

The State 0f California climate change laws that over-regulate the trucking industry have a lot to do with it. They’re designed to keep out of state trucker from taking work away from the union.

I’ve been busy wrapping up a contract – just finished today. Sobek’s been slumming at H2. Everybody else? I dunno.

What’s going on with the container ship problem, anyway? Been quiet on the news about it.

As of last Wednesday:

According to the Marine Exchange of Southern California, 102 container vessels were waiting for berths in Los Angeles and Long Beach on Wednesday. The combined number of container ships waiting offshore and at the berths is at or near an all-time high.

I hear the secretary of transportation will get on it as soon as his kids are in school and he has time to focus on it.

Been quiet on the news about it.

As soon as Biden said, “Problem solved,” the press dutifully dropped any mention of it.

Imagine what else they’re keeping mum about.
