    Since theses freighters are off-loading ONLY, then HI-Tailing it back to Asia to get another Load, are keeping our good guy ILWU UNION Men, working around the clock 24/7/365 !

    There's 30 ships sitting at anchorage at any given time, just WAITING for a Berth !

    The wider Panama Canal, and Panamax ships are not making any difference in the current situation !

    I got to figure that a guy up in the crane is making close to $500,000 a year !

    God Bless Them !!!

    Duh. When you shut down large portions of the supply chain for months at a time, it's going to create huge imbalance.

    Not at all. Panama Canal volume for 2020 heading Asia-US East Coast was up 22% over 2019.
