U.S. Ports See Shipping Logjams Likely Extending Far Into 2022

As I have been stressing, we are likely to see capacity constraints continue well into 2022 and 2023.  The recent outbreak of the Delta variant of COVID in Asia is shutting down factories and ports.  This will only add to the back log of products being shipped to North America.  While ocean containers are waiting longer to be off loaded from ships, they are also taking much longer to deliver once they they are in transit domestically.  This will create additional capacity issues as the containers will take much longer to get back to Asia to be loaded.

This will create a repeat of what has been happening all this year.

Articles like this are great to illustrate the problems all of us are facing.


Thanks for all the hard work.
