It is reported that after a Chinese New Year holiday, the port congestion in California has not been eased, and it is getting worse. Container ships stopped at the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Not only that, the congestion of container ships is still spreading to other ports in North America.

According to the port situation overview data released by Hapag-Lloyd earlier this week, there are 35 ships waiting in Los Angeles/Long Beach, compared with 37 ships a week ago. This figure was 30 ships two weeks ago and 32 ships three weeks ago.

According to data from the Port of Los Angeles, 142,308 TEU of cargo was unloaded at the port this week, a year-on-year increase of 88.91%; next week’s forecast is 189,036 TEU, a year-on-year increase of 340.19%; next week, it is 165,876 TEU, a year-on-year increase of 220.48%. The cargo volume in the next half month can be seen.

Container terminals, truck companies, railways and warehouses are all “overloaded.” In order to cope with the continued congestion, container shipping companies have taken countermeasures. At present, the centralized transportation industry is facing severe congestion. The congestion of the port makes the waiting time of ships prolonged and further causes the lack of capacity.

The congestion of the port directly affected the supply of products. Nowadays, the shelves of some products in the United States are out of stock.
