Joe Biden Saves Christmas, and Santa's job

Walmart CEO Credits Biden with Supply Chain Improvement after Weeks of Conservative Hysteria

President Joe Biden's administration took action to combat these issues, such as expanding the Port of Los Angeles' hours to 24/7, securing commitments from top importers to expedite shipping container removal, and signing off on 100 day reviews of vulnerabilities in the supply chain. 

That didn't stop conservative pundits and lawmakers from seizing upon this vulnerability. Former presidential counsellor Kellyanne Conway falsely claimed there were no supply chain issues under Trump. Conservative talk show hosts like Fox News' Laura Ingraham painted Biden as a grinch who ruined Christmas—weeks before the Christmas season even began. 

While there are still obstacles in getting the global supply chain back to its former efficiency, the specter of late gifts and barren shelves presented by conservatives is at odds with recent comments made by Doug McMillon, the CEO of Walmart—the country's largest importer last year. 

........ 

In comments to MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle, McMillon said: 

"The combination of private enterprise and government working together has been really successful. We've had a lot of participation, been able to participate in solving some of these congestion issues, so I would like to give the administration credit for helping do things like get the ports open 24 hours a day, to open up some of the trucking lines, ... and then all the way through the supply chain there's been a lot of innovation ... Each month of the quarter got stronger. The number of containers that we're moving through the ports has grown significantly."

Does this qualify as a whackadoodle Lefty thread? Or is this just flooding the zone with bullshit?

I know a trucker in LA who says there aren’t enough drivers, this was just the other day.

I always check my local trucker for the best economic advice.

So, increase the wages and recruit more truckers. Why do you hate capitalism?

Talking about old news, as of last week the port was not operating 24\7 that’s a fact jack.

The ILWU is not saying a word about port congestion. You would think that would be the topic of the day, the only thing printed this month is Biden's urge to operate 24/7.

I take that back, that crane appears to be unloading in the webcam, that would be good news, if it means we’re at 24/7, which we weren’t as of last week.

We've been 24/7 for at least 11 days, some terminals are cleaning up their traffic jams to operate fully, that's why your trucker doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground.

eroka said that a shortage of truck drivers and nighttime warehouse workers pose problems in establishing a 24/7 schedule, along with getting importers to embrace expanded hours: “It’s an effort to try to get this entire orchestra of supply chain players to get on the same calendar.”

No doubt that it's a difficult job to speed up an already busy operation, A 25% reduction in the number of import containers, and a reduction in sitting containers down by 29% is good news. Thank you for the article.

So port management are responsible for truck drivers and warehousing?

In some regards, yes. Truckers coming into the port area for loading.

The real problem is that the port is undersized and underequipped for the traffic load. They need more land in a very expensive place, and better/bigger/faster cranes. And of course, training. They've needed it for years.

This is what happens when people with a slum lord attitude control investment in infrastructure.

... the problem now is a shortage of chassis.  ...

The Ports of LA/LB are multimodal. Yeah, they load containers onto trucks but they also load them onto trains. Shortage of chassis doesn't explain trains.

It isn't the stacking height limits of the Communist Enclave of Long Beach as Ryan Petersen, CEO of Flexport, suggested. The mayor of LB immediately issued a variance for that. That isn't even a burp in the traffic and those fire department stacking heights are pretty common. Also if you look at the port pictures, they don't apply to the port itself. That said, Petersen is really smart.

It isn't Dumb Chum's Biden's vax mandate cancelled Christmas either. The ports have been vaccinating longshoremen and seafarers since February. They were basically first in line even before granny.

It isn't the capacity of the #1 and #2 largest ports in the US. It ain't that because port volume is down from 2020.

It isn't lack of working hours although Biden ordered them open 24/7.  Truckers show up by appointment and those logistics are managed. And Dumb Chum's buddy who's a trucker knows squat. That's why he's a trucker.

Demurrage and dwell fines aren't solving the problem although shipping companies sure are happy to collect them. Shipping companies are making bank of this crisis.

There are no simple answers. What is Going on With Shipping? w/Sal Mercogliano and gCaptain are good sources of information.

No, it ain't that. Port volume for LA/LB is down from 2020. These are already the #1 and #2 largest ports in the US. And they don't skimp on infrastructure. They invest billions and they handle the biggest ships.

Down 8% from a peak last year, per your earlier link. And IIRC they are trying to handle a much larger truck volume within the overall volume.

There was about a half hour segment on this, on the Sunday news shows. Interviews with Mayor/Secretary Pete, who did his usual cheerful job of explaining techno-wonky details, and with the port manager, among others. The manager accompanied a reporter on a fly-over of the whole port facility, including the truck depot, with lane after lane of stacked containers. It was chock-a-block and one of the things he said is that they could double the size of the truck outflow lanes and still be pressed to handle the traffic. When asked if he'd like more space to put containers, he said "Oh (bleep) yes."

I'm not claiming to know the whole answer or I'd be expecting a call from Mr. Buttigieg.

Two observations: If the ports don't have a 3rd shift ... it doesn't seem like it's 24/7.

More interesting is the report from maybe NPR last week that the trucker shortage was in the ind owner-op group who can't afford wasting large sections of the day waiting to load/unload whereas the teamster drivers are getting paid while in the truck. No point in moving your truck if you're not making money.

False economy, they don't get paid if they don't deliver anything.

One of the things i looked for and didn't see, and maybe because there's no real demand for it: a fleet of shorties hauling containers out of the port depot to a freight yard where truckers can just drive in, hook up, and go (with appropriate paperworkage, of course). This lends credence to the idea that a shortage of chassis is part of the problem.

Are chassis infrastructure?

Truckers Steer Clear of 24-Hour Operations at Southern California Ports

Nov. 17, 2021 1:31 pm ET

LINKY

The Biden administration pressed ports in Southern California to open 24 hours a day to help ease supply-chain bottlenecks. The move has barely made a ripple.

One terminal at the Port of Long Beach flung open its gates around the clock for truckers in mid-September, from Monday to Thursday. But no trucks showed up, prompting the terminal to tighten the rules. In late September, it said it would open during overnight hours only if 25 trucks made appointments. Since then, those criteria were met only one night, and only five big rigs showed up.

Giles Broom, a spokesman for the terminal operated by Total Terminals International LLC, said it cost on average almost $10,000 to remain open during overnight hours. Trucking companies that make appointments but don’t show up face no penalties.

The slow adoption of 24-hour services at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the nation’s busiest port complex, highlights the challenge facing the Biden administration as supply-chain problems persist despite months of government and industry measures to ease congestion. This week, the complex set a record of 86 container ships waiting offshore for a berth, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California.

Mr. Biden said last month that the neighboring ports would move toward 24-hour operations in an effort to double the hours that cargo moves off terminals.

Today, TTI is the only one of the port complex’s 13 terminals offering 24-hour operations. The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are public agencies that act as landlords to private terminal operators.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Tuesday during a press conference at the Port of Los Angeles that moving to 24/7 operations isn’t like “flipping a switch.”

The inertia has prompted finger-pointing by various participants in supply chains built to move goods from the ports to inland distribution centers and then on to retailers and manufacturers across the U.S.

One trucking company that would like to use the 24-hour pickups said TTI’s appointment restrictions are so onerous it struggled to qualify for an appointment. To pick up loaded boxes, TTI requires firms to drop off certain types of empty containers as well as certain types of truck trailers, known as chassis, so the terminal can maintain a balance of equipment.

“I can have 100 or 200 containers” to return, said Paul Brashier, vice president of drayage and intermodal at Reno, Nev.-based ITS Logistics. “But if they aren’t the specific steamship line box on the specific chassis they need at the specific minimum, you’re out of luck.“

It is a very tough problem that I posit is being handled responsibly. As i pointed out in an earlier thread, we currently have a 25% reduction in the number of import containers, and a reduction in sitting containers down by 29%. That's very good news with a month to go before Christmas. It is impossible to think this problem will be completely resolved before the holidays, but I believe that most people will be satisfied. If Walmart is happy, it's fair to consider the customer will be happy.

Hey Dumb, I got a question and you seem to be the resident expert on these things. Or maybe you can ask your trucker buddy.

Is the Union Pacific near dock rail yard at the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility open 24/7? If you know more about the two BNSF yards, that's ok too. BTW, how much container traffic goes through LA/LB via rail?
