Port of Los Angeles will go 24/7 to ease supply chain bottlenecks before the holidays

President Joe Biden has an expansion of operations at the Port of Los Angeles as prices keep climbing and container ships wait to dock in a traffic jam threatening the U.S. economy and holiday shopping.

Prices are soaring, in large part because container ships are stranded at ports and because unloaded goods are waiting for trucks, leading to mass shortages and delays that have caused a longer than expected bout of inflation.

The White House responded to the backlog by finalizing an agreement for the Port of Los Angeles to become a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week operation. The hope is that nighttime operations will help to break the logjam. The move is intended to facilitate moving stranded container ships that are driving prices higher for U.S. consumers.
