Port Berth Spaces Causing Disruption to Supply Chains in USA


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/23/2021 -- Supply chains have been severely disrupted in many different ways over the past 12 months, thanks to the impact of COVID-19. Now, the biggest US trade gateway with Asia is struggling with traffic with the longest waits for berth space in major ports that we have seen in some time. There are currently 37 ships anchored outside the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, more than there have been at any time in the past six months. It's almost double the size of the queue that existed in mid-July and is coming close to the all-time record. One of the reasons for the significant increase in traffic is disruption to transport routes caused by partial closures of a major Chinese port due to a COVID-19 outbreak there. As a result of the queues the average wait for berth space is now 6.2 days - although this is longer than the figures for June it has yet to reach the peak of 8 days that was set in April.
