On the verge of collapse! Los Angeles, the second largest city in the United States, declared an emergency "closed city"! Logistics may delay a large area!
In the severe situation where the epidemic is worsening and on the verge of collapse, Los Angeles, the second largest city in the United States, announced on December 3 that it has re-entered the lockdown. Prior to the two major ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, due to equipment and manpower shortages, port congestion was "nearly completely paralyzed", and the Los Angeles Airport demolition personnel were infected with the new crown on a large scale.
After this "closure", cargo may be delayed on a large scale. On December 2, local time, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a warning to the public that 150,000 to 200,000 people may die from new coronary pneumonia in the United States in the next two months.
In order to avoid the shortage of hospital beds, the City of Los Angeles, California urgently issued a "home order" requiring residents of the city to cancel non-essential activities.
On December 2, local time, the City of Los Angeles issued an emergency administrative order requiring all residents of the city to stay at home from now on. People can only legally leave their residences when they engage in certain necessary activities. This administrative order also banned all forms of travel, including walking, biking, riding a motorcycle, taking a car or public transportation.
The Mayor of Los Angeles, USA, Jasetti: My request could not be simpler. I should live a low-key life now and cancel all non-essential activities. Please don't go out.
Jasetti also said that the number of beds per capita in California is low in the United States, so it is important to control the spread of the epidemic. The number of confirmed cases in the United States has recently increased significantly. According to data from the Pan American Health Organization, the number of confirmed cases in the United States in November increased by 30% compared with October.
It is worth noting that major U.S. ports, including the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach, have generally experienced equipment shortages and extended loading and unloading times, coupled with the serious container imbalance in Pacific trade, resulting in a backlog of imported containers in U.S. ports.
This caused congestion at the terminal, poor container turnover, and blocked cargo transportation. This problem has never been improved, and there is a growing trend. In addition, according to industry sources, due to the large-scale infection of the new crown by local demolition personnel at Los Angeles Airport, China's three major airlines will be suspended from December 1-10, and international air transport is facing large-scale delays.
Due to the shortage of manpower, all cargo operations of CA LAX have ceased. The goods that have entered the warehouse are ready to be returned, and the goods that have left the port are ready to be returned. Recently, there has been a clear rebound in the global epidemic.
The logistics situation in the future is not optimistic. Foreign trade personnel should pay close attention to relevant information and adjust shipment plans in time to avoid delays.
