Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Jean Sirocca discussed the setback of container ships recordings in “Morning with Maria” and explained what the port was doing to deal with the situation.
Saroka argued on Wednesday that the cargo should be pushed out, compromised with truck power and returned to the port with “corresponding exports and vacancies.”
“The big orchestra of players in the supply chain should get a similar schedule,” he stressed.
Seroka noted that “we really got all hands on from the administration and the people working in the private sector” to help mitigate the situation.
This would include “more controlled service hours of operation,” he explained.
“The port has expanded hours and days of operation,” Seroka told Fox Business Cheryl Casson.

“We need more truckers from the warehouse community and the private sector to bring them back to business.”

The American supply chain has not been able to handle the influx of imports so far as businesses rush to restore depleted inventory during the epidemic.
Tens of containers were trapped in Los Angeles and Long Beach ports in California, which accounted for more than a quarter of all American imports, the Wall Street Journal said last month, with dozens of ships docked for three weeks.
In fact, Southern California ports have recently broken numerous records on the number of ships on shore and the number of ships waiting to dock, CBS Los Angeles reported.
The media has cited many factors, including the global surge of the Delta transformation, the lack of access to vaccines in some countries, and the lack of transport containers and truck drivers.
Participants in every link in the US chain, including shipping lines, port workers, truckers, warehouse operators, railways and retailers, are reported to be suffering from labor shortages.
On Wednesday, Seroka discussed a new program announced to try to solve the Los Angeles harbor problem.
He emphasized that the port was “doing everything.”
“We’ve got about half a million 20-foot equivalent units, 250,000 containers, which are two weeks’ worth of work in the country’s largest port,” he said.
He explained that dock workers who work in and out of ships, trains and trucks are “working six days a week.”
Another 1,000 workers are “showing record productivity,” Seroka said.
“In fact, ship production has increased by 50% since the surge began last summer, and every vessel arriving at the Port of Los Angeles has loaded 11,300 container units and exchanged by ships, which is the best in the world today,” he said.
Seroka later noted that the trocers were “a little lighter.”
Busiest US Container Port Complex Ward of Industry ‘Crisis’ Supply Chain Distributions
“Only half of the truckers registered to trade in the Twin Ports work at least once a week,” he said, “and we need more people in that sector.”
Seroka later pointed out that warehouse workers “usually work only during the day and are quite disturbed by the Kovid-19 and other requirements of workers.”
“We need more people on the job,” he continued.
Speaking to “Mornings with Maria” late last month, executive directors of the Port of Long Beach, the largest container port complex in the United States, warned of the industry’s “crisis” over supply chain bottlenecks.
Mario Cordero explained why the “confluence of factors” grew into a “crisis”, and that the supply chain disruption due to the epidemic was “too much.”
He points out that another big factor is skyrocketing consumer demand in the United States, especially because of the increasing number of people choosing to shop from home amid the epidemic, which is related to online orders.
Leaders of some of the country’s busiest ports expect congestion at ocean gates to continue until 2022, the Wall Street Journal reported last month.
Professor Margaret Kidd, who teaches supply chain education at the University of Houston, spoke with Maria on Wednesday morning that the supply chain crisis “could easily go from 2022 to 2023.”
“I think that flattening the Kovid curve is a big factor in these Southeast Asian producing countries,” Kidd told Casson.
The epidemic has caused production to slow down in factories such as Vietnam and warned of “a shortage of labor” as factories are now reopening.
“It would take a good four to six months to regain production at these factories,” he said.
“Supply chain managers really need to think long and hard about where they can bring their imports,” Kidd said.
He noted that it was “very busy” in the port of Houston, one of the world’s largest ports on the Gulf Coast. New record for containers
In August, Port Houston recorded the highest month for total TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units), at 320,086, an increase of 29% compared to last August, according to the port, which is its highest monthly load import TEUs.
“By the end of the year, I think you will see more than 3 million TEUs come through Houston alone,” Kidd predicted Wednesday.
