What's caused America's supply chain crunch?

60 Minutes follows the U.S.’ struggling supply chain, from choked ports on the West Coast, to packed rail yards in Chicago. Along the way, we found finger-pointing, huge profits, and massive losses.

    lol I was working that ship when they filmed this – Incredible
    A normal year we see 7 to 9 million TEUs and 2021 was over 21+ million TEUs we moved
    While we unloaded ships at record pace – the rest of the chain could not handle the sheer volume we sent them from the dock to their warehouses and rail yards.
    Not enough chassis
    Not enough truckers
    Not enough space
    Not enough warehouse space
    Not enough rail yard space
    Not enough trains

    Almost triple the normal volume…..who would be ready for 3x the normal volume?

    Historic volume thanks to inflation and the demand for overseas goods

  2. Barbara Jones says:

    Everyone that is involved in not allowing the truckers to do their jobs need to be prosecuted and pay a very hefty fines and restitution for causing this unnecessary dilemma. They are wrecking every economy on the planet.

  3. jeffrey wolf says:

    What about the rumors that half of the ships out in the ocean are empty and out there for political reasons? Also the fact that these truckers don't get paid while they're sitting out there for 8 10 12 hours a shift waiting to get loaded they don't get paid till they start driving. They need to be compensated for their time

  4. rwhunt99 says:

    What I'm not hearing is how long are US products stuck on boats, and the answer is – if it's made in America, it doesn't need to be on a boat in the first place and no delays in getting it to the stores. Before, they calim it can be made so much cheaper offshore, and now, while it might cost more to make, they are not paying excessive costs for about everything in the supply chain. Price gouging, and profiteering is making "made in America" the best thing ever.

  5. Manny Bruce says:

    Ok..then why not federal-ize the Nation Guards in California and in the states with the main truck routes and get those containers moving . Put the soldiers at the ports and at the warehouses to help load and unload cargo . Have the military logistics and Engineer core clear land for the empty containers to be deposited . Designate and enforce a right lane highway express truck route in the states that the containers needs to be shipped through and run the trucks 24hrs .

    The federal government needs to declare it a nation security to the economy and have the military take over the operation from the private and local governments .
    The U.S. spends trillions on a large military and don't use it to benefit the people , but yet , they can use the military to help other nations for photo ops . Smh

  6. Doak Belt says:

    Does it ever make you think someone is trying to destroy small businesses???
    Plandemic shut downs, new restrictions to return a container (based on color),, unused chassis, supply chain rules, hhhmmmm.
    Ruin small businesses and you destroy America!!!

  7. Mista205 says:

    Think about it this is one way to help solve some the housing issues in California, 3×3 containers, insulation, 2 windows, 1bth 1brd. Get them ppl off the streets down town LA maybe I’ll come back. It’s just logical that way, it’s too much finger pointing ok point them at me. Can somebody make this happen I’ll volunteer to help building up a structure for it. Sometimes it takes the voice of the Poor ppl in American to help solve poor ppls problems

  8. Randy Hall says:

    I got an idea how about we just make stuff in America then we won't have to ship it in WoW nobody thinks of that. The first time when I was young I saw made in China or made in Japan I asked my dad why would they ship something all the way from there when we can make it right here. He was a really smart person but he didn't know the answer

  9. Mikey says:

    I have absolutely ZERO sympathy for these ANTI-FREEDOM-TRADERS. If they weren't having their products made by anti-free people (YouTube won't allow me to say the truth) in third world communist dictatorships, none of this would be happening.
