The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles continue to encounter a flood of imports arriving as US businesses restock their inventories and prepare for the holiday shopping season. Over thirty-five vessels have been anchored off the ports as the domestic supply chain also struggles to cope with the increased volumes. Containers are dwelling for an average of nine to 10 days before they move inland, compared with a pre-pandemic average of two to three days. Last year, despite the impacts of the pandemic, the two ports moved a combined record 17 million TEUs and this year the ports are forecast to surpass that and move a combined 19 million TEUs.
