Maybe all those ships waiting are suffering in some part to the California bottleneck?
"a California Truck Ban which says all trucks must be 2011 or newer and a law called AB 5 which all but prohibits Owner Operators. " "Traditionally the ports have been served by Owner Operators (non union). California has now proposed banning Owner Operators. " " the DMV beginning in 2020 will automatically block 2010 and older trucks from registration"
I visited a port in California and saw the trucks coming and going. I also saw the unloading cranes which are supposedly the the inspiration for the Walkers in Star Wars. This is a couple of shots from a boat we went on past. We also visited the yard and thought how would they ever know if somebody had something in those containers they shouldn't.
