Assemblymember Waldron – Unclogging The Ports

Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember The crisis at the San Pedro Port Complex is sending shockwaves across the nation. San Pedro handles 40% of all containerized cargo that enters the United States, making it the primary gateway for U.S. trade to Asia. Unfortunately, cargo is piling up at California’s terminals, limiting supplies and increasing costs exponentially. With the Holiday shopping rush soon upon us, this will likely mean a short supply of gifts as well as basic goods through the end of the year!

So, what can be done?

On November 3rd, the Senate and Assembly Select Committees on Ports and Goods Movement held a joint informational hearing to examine the scope of the shipping crisis and recommend corrective action. Among proposed solutions were extended gate hours at ports, streamling for container storage, lifting weight restrictions, and promoting temporary use of out-of-state trucks.

This crisis affects California and the entire nation. We must take action now to fix it! Read my full Op-Ed on the port crisis by clicking here.
