US President Biden is convening business leaders, port leaders, and union leaders to address delays and congestion across the transportation supply chain.   The groups in Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and the ILWU have announced a series of public and private commitments to move goods faster, and strengthen the resiliency of the supply chain by moving towards a 24/7 operations.  These two ports are the point of entry for 40 percent of containers to the US. Large companies such as Walmart, UPS, FedEx, Samsung, Target and the Home Depot are announcing they will use expanded hours to move more cargo off the docks, so ships can come to shore faster.
