Port of Oakland calls for cargo amid supply chain backlog

Authorities have called on the shipping line to send more cargo to Oakland Port as a backup for ships at other West Coast ports. As of Tuesday, 100 ships were waiting to enter the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. An official at the Port of Oakland said it was not the case in Oakland. “The Port of Oakland is uncrowded and ready for further business,” said Brian Brandes, Director of Maritime Affairs, Oakland Port. The cargo volume in 2021 is large, but there is more capacity. Port officials said shipping services have bypassed Auckland since the summer. They believe that returning the ship to Auckland will ease the supply chain impasse. “Shipping companies need to reopen services to stabilize their supply chains, and import and export partners reflect this sentiment,” Brandes said. I have experienced a backlog since August. By hiring more port workers and installing new cranes, we eliminated the backlog.
