Visualizing California’s stunning shipping gridlock

To visualize the latest supply-chain gridlock, CNN used location information transmitted by every container ship and picked up by MarineTraffic.

When animated in a time-lapse video, dozens of vessels might be seen maneuvering in holding patterns 10 to twenty miles offshore. Another group of ships is moored nearer to shore. Container ships transfer inland to the port solely often.

During similar interval two years in the past — the second full week in October 2019, earlier than the Covid-19 pandemic — information reveals ships simply transferring into and out of the ports directly.

Approximately 200,000 shipping containers had been off the coast of Los Angeles earlier this week, in keeping with Gene Seroka, the chief director of the Port of Los Angeles. Seroka informed CNN his staff had been attempting to maneuver items off the port as shortly as potential.
The congestion on the California coast led President Joe Biden to announce that the Port of Los Angeles would transfer to 24/7 operations, according to the neighboring Port of Long Beach. The two ports deal with 40% of container site visitors within the United States.
