Where Do We Go From Here on Port Congestion?

What's driving port congestion?  As C.H. Robinson says:

Right now, many retailers have a backlog of inventory in their warehouses, and frankly do not have room for more. While that, in part, explains why retail peak season will look very different this year, it does not explain why relief is not being felt at the ports. 

Even if we experience a late or mild peak of imports later this year or no peak at all, port challenges won’t be going away anytime soon. While each supply chain is unique and requires an equally unique strategy, there are some things you can consider to help you mitigate today’s disruption.

Read on to determine whether shippers can expect relief soon and what to do in the meantime.
