A trucking company has reportedly dumped empty shipping containers in Los Angeles suburban streets that are located near clogged California ports amid an ongoing supply chain crisis and rising inflation, according to a local news outlet.

The UCTI trucking company’s lot only has room for 65 containers, forcing them to locate additional space for cargo boxes along residential streets in Wilmington, California, CBSLA reported Monday. President Joe Biden announced Wednesday that the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports in California would be required to stay open 24/7 to fight the growing supply chain problems experienced throughout the country.

“It’s a bunch of neighbors that are very upset because it’s a non-stop issue,” local resident Sonia Cervantes told CBSLA. Cervantes added that that a container had blocked her car at one point while she attempted to leave for work.

“Right now with the ports and everything that’s going on over there we’re stuck with the containers, having to bring them all to the yard, and we only have so much space,” UCTI Trucking owner Frank Arrieran told CBSLA. more

  1. And this is only October. The winter of our discontent – screw that – 20-30% inflation is at hand. Biden and his Deep State / FED / Wall Street cronies is making Jimmy Carter’s double-digit disaster of the late ’70s look like a picnic.

  2. Here in NE Ohio today we were in three different grocery stores.

    There were no bare shelves. Prices are notably higher but we found everything we need.

  3. flip, for the past several months the things I buy have been hit & miss on availability.
    It will get worse, much worse.
    It’s self perpetuating like the TP shortage last year.
    Panic buying commences in 3..2..

  4. They should place those containers upon the lawns of the poorly-heeled narcissistic and grasping democrat elitists. Let them know what it feels like to be dumped on.

  5. Who owns those ports now? I know Obama pretty much handed Long Beach to China in 2012, and Trump did his dead-level best to force the Chicoms to sell in 2019, but it’s not clear if he succeeded. Not much clarification in the media, of course. Anybody know who’s owning those ports?

    What say you, Mr. Buttigieg?

  6. General Malaise, I’m starting to wonder if the current empty shelves correspond with a coming decrease in consumers.
