Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka discussed the record backlog of container ships hitting the United States on “Mornings with Maria” and explained what the port is doing to handle the situation.
Seroka argued on Wednesday that cargo must be pushed out, matched with truck power and “corresponding exports and empties” must get back to the port.
He stressed that the “large orchestra of players in the supply chain need to get on similar schedules.”
Seroka noted that “we’ve got all hands on deck from the administration and folks that are really working the private sector” to help alleviate the situation.
He explained that it includes “more regulated service hours of operation.”
“The port has expanded hours and days of operation,” Seroka told FOX Business’ Cheryl Casone.
“We need more of that from the warehouse community and the private sector in addition to bringing more truckers back to the industry.”
