U.S. President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday that the U.S. administration had reached an agreement with Los Angeles and Long Beach ports, the biggest two ports in the U.S., to operate 24/7 to address the supply chain disruption.
Biden’s move is to rely on expanded port and shipping operations as supply chain blockages are threatening to disrupt the U.S. holiday season.
Biden brought together powerbrokers from ports, unions and big business to hash out how to speedily address a backlog of products that includes 500,000 containers on cargo ships waiting to be offloaded at the clogged ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
The Port of Los Angeles will join the Port of Long Beach in stepping up its round-the-clock operations, the White House said earlier, and Walmart and other retailers will expand use of non-peak hours as well.
