Port of Los Angeles diverting shipments to ease congestion

It has been reported that the Port of Los Angeles (L.A.) is diverting all shipments to ease out congestion and keep the supply chain flowing, also stressing, these diversions are temporary.

The Port of L.A. and the Port of Oakland, which is impacted by congestion in L.A., are discussing measures on how to minimise supply chain disruptions. One possible way that is being mulled over is by segregating all inland-bound shipments and move them by road overnight. This amounts to close to one-third of the import traffic. To achieve this, careful segregation of marine & inland shipments will need to be done.
