China Port Backlog Said to be Clearing
Reports coming in from the larger China ports are showing that they have been able to clear some of the backlog of containers that have been accumulating while pending export. This bit of good news will hopefully mean that in the next few weeks we’ll see even more cargo leaving those ports bound for the U.S.
One issue that remains is the availability of truckers. One port official said that normally they have over 20,000 active truckers in their port limits but recently they had as few as 700 working. However, in the past week over 8,000 truckers have reported for work meaning that this bottleneck should be clearing as well.
