The supply chain is so screwed up Hospitals are running out of the Basics, wheelchairs, crutches etc. Now add insult to injury, California and the Federal Govt has caused these delays with their Covid Mandates and they are now Fining the Shippers.
Officials for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach said on Monday that they will begin fining shipping companies whose cargo containers stay in marine terminals for too long as they work to reduce congestion in their ports.
Beginning on Nov. 1, the ports will charge containers that fall into two categories: containers scheduled to move by truck and containers moving by rail.
Ocean carriers will be charged for every container scheduled to move by truck that has been dwelling in the port for longer than nine days.
Mandates and Vaccine Passports are the problem.
