US shipping backups shift to East Coast, Gulf ports


(NewsNation) — From one coast to another, U.S. importers may be having déjà vu.

Shipping container backups are now being triggered on the East Coast while the West Coast is still trying to get back on track. Ports in New York and New Jersey all the way down to Georgia and the Gulf Coast of Texas are now feeling the impacts.

The influx has left 200,000 containers clogging up the ports in New York and New Jersey.

In the video above, Zach Strickland, head of market intelligence at Freightwaves, weighs in on the issue.
