US ports introduce emergency supply measures

President Biden has announced that two of the country’s busiest ports can operate around the clock, to ease a backlog in the supply chain.

The backlog of cargo ships at the busiest port complex in the US – images of which have come to define the global supply chain crisis – is unlikely to return to normal before next summer.

The executive director of the Port of Long Beach in California says plans to switch to 24/7 operations, pushed by President Biden this week, will improve the crisis in the short term but that logistics globally need a rethink.
