As concerns over supply chain issues at America’s ports continue to grow as the holiday season closes in, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg says troubles are likely to continue into 2022.
Joe Biden said the Port of Los Angeles would open 24/7 to help fix supply chain issues. Speaking from the White House on Wednesday, Biden said industry leaders like Walmart, UPS and FedEx also agreed to expanded hours in order to address supply chain bottlenecks ahead of the Christmas season.
The Biden administration has acknowledged the worsening shortages of consumer goods ahead of Christmas shopping season. According to Reuters, which cited an unnamed White House official on Tuesday, there would be items unattainable for Christmas presents due to supply chain disruptions.
