The port, which operates at the gateway to trade with Asia, the largest in the United States, extends nights and works on weekends to eliminate port delays in record volumes.

The Port of Los Angeles will extend its weekend opening hours, and the adjacent Long Beach will extend the time it takes for trucks to pick up and return containers, a joint statement on September 17 said.

The hub, located in San Pedro Bay, California, travels approximately 40% of all container cargo entering the United States each year and approximately 30% of all container exports. Maritime bottlenecks have exacerbated transport capacity constraints, pushing fares across the Pacific to record highs.

The two ports also worked closely with the White House Supply Chain Confusion Task Force to “reduce bottlenecks and speed up the movement of goods to consumers while exporting US exporters, including agricultural producers. We are expanding opportunities. “

The number of container vessels awaiting entry into Tuimport reached an all-time high of 65 this week, carrying the potential payload of a cargo box that stretches in half across the country when lined up end-to-end.

According to LA port data, the average waiting time was 8.7 days, compared to 6.2 days in mid-August. The longest-waiting ship arrived on August 23rd.
