    Severe shipping disruptions in California’s major ports, Long Beach and Los Angeles, caused record-breaking queues of container ships in October 2021. The congestion was attributed to a surge in cargo due to global pandemic production shifts and longstanding supply chain challenges. The backlog created delays in unloading. Increased consumer goods demand, particularly toys and appliances, contributed to the problem. Factors like pandemic-induced labor shortages, port lockdowns in China, and infrastructure inadequacies compounded the crisis. Despite remedial efforts, industry experts anticipated a prolonged backlog.
