The C3 Take
  • As of last week, there were over 100 ships that were waiting to unload at the Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors.
  • Shipping delays hurt supply chains which has a negative impact on consumers and the environment alike.
  • While increased consumer demand from a rebounding economy was bound to hamstring supply chains, government regulations such as the Jones and Foreign Dredge Acts make the problem worse.
  • To reduce supply chain backlogs while benefiting consumers and the environment, governments at the state and federal levels should reduce harmful and antiquated regulations.

“FreightWaves also notes that the total amount of cargo waiting offshore is 815,958 TEU (20-foot equivalent units). That’s more than the combined amount of imports for Los Angeles and Long Beach for the entire month of November, the story says.”
