Supply Chains No More: The Question of California

You’d be forgiven if you though the biggest challenges facing the US supply chain was its overreliance on the state of California. While some 40% of US containerized imports come through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the ports are not the problem. 

And while the cities of Los Angeles and Long Beach certainly haven’t been quick to come to the aid of their beleaguered–and admittedly quite advanced–port terminals, the problem is so much bigger than the administration of any one port complex, or city, or state. Even one as tremendously and tremendously afflicted as California.

Current supply chain woes aren’t just about goods getting to Southern California, or how efficiently Southern Californian dockworkers can get those goods in containers off of ships. It’s all ports, it’s all transport, and it’s about a cascading series of crises impacting not just how goods get to the US from China, but how we move goods from Savannah and Long Beach and Tacoma and Houston to Topeka and Louisville and Phoenix and Duluth.

Please join us for our upcoming seminar tackling these issues and more.
