Skytek Report: Los Angeles Port Congestion

Location: Los Angeles, California
Issued by Skytek: at 12:00 GMT on 27 September, 2021


Los Angeles port is the largest and busiest port in the Western Hemisphere, handling more than 9 million TEU containers each year. It is the 7th largest port in the World.

A record number of container ships have been waiting in the waters outside the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to unload cargo. The bottleneck results from a shortage of trucks and drivers to pick up goods and overwhelming demand for imported consumer products.
