I’m A Twenty Year Truck Driver, I Will Tell You Why America’s “Shipping Crisis” Will Not End

I have a simple question for every ‘expert’ who thinks they understand the root causes of the shipping crisis:

Why is there only one crane for every 50–100 trucks at every port in America?

No ‘expert’ will answer this question.

This is a solution which should be cheaper.  Eliminate the outsourcing/off shoring of jobs. If port fees covered the real costs  then it would no longer be cheaper to build washers and dryers in Asia ship them across the Pacific then get clogged up in ports. It would  reduce wasted fuel and cut pollution. 

I never saw the docks in Saigon but I did Da Nang.  What he describes is the same chaos I saw.  Took two weeks to get replacement barrels for 175mm and 8 in guns off the dock.

Of course, taking into account the fact that it is now easier for the largest producers of goods to conduct their business in China, we will simply be inundated with parcels. In addition, they will be constantly confused and lost.I am currently using a package tracking service to check the delivery status and be sure that the goods I ordered will come to me. But the situation definitely requires an urgent solution, otherwise we will simply drown everything in the number of parcels and, importantly, packaging material.
