Yikes: Portals have been heavily supported Halloween costumes still appear through them

One of Team Brandon’s most notable failures was the redundancy of the LA port and US supply chain. When inflation and supply chain problems first became a big issue a few months ago, Americans saw image after image of ships sitting off the coast of California, waiting. unloading.

Since then, the issue of transportation has largely faded from public consciousness. Brandon himself declared victory, most stores have stopped reporting on it, and the regime’s media blames inflation on corporate “greed” rather than poor supply chain management.

But the problem, though forgotten by many, is far from over. In fact, it’s still so bad that the Halloween costumes were still being scrapped last weekend, many, many days after the Halloween season ended.

That’s according to Freight Waves, a shipping-focused website, reported on December 14 that:

When you look at the millions of containers that are handled through our nation’s ports, many Americans don’t realize that a single container can have hundreds of different products in each box. With pressure to meet customer holiday deadlines, logistics companies like CH Robinson are deploying staff to open these containers and sort time-sensitive items in an effort to get them on shelves. goods on time.

“One of the unique things we’re doing is using our warehouse space in port cities to sort their containers and get out the product most urgently,” says Noah Hoffman, sales specialist. retail and vice president of North American Surface Transportation at CH Robinson said.

“Why take up space on a truck with a late Halloween costume or a coming Valentine’s Day inventory when toys and wrapping paper need to hit the stores now? We even took marine containers to our employee parking lot in Southern California, sorted them by hand, and built screens that could be placed directly on the first floor of a store. With so many twists and turns in the supply chain today, skipping a few links in the chain makes all the difference.”

[…]“All of the Christmas merchandise will be somewhere that consumers can buy before Black Friday – on board, out of a container, at a distribution center for orders online or on,” explains Hoffman. actual shelf. “What is different this year is that Christmas merchandise is still on sale. Believe it or not, Halloween costumes are still arriving. That’s how everything is still being backed up. ”

Yes, supply chains are so tight and cargo is so delayed that ports are simultaneously unloading goods for Halloween and Valentine’s Day, trying to sort out those that are most relevant and should be unloaded right away. immediately and what can wait.

So if you can’t find Christmas gifts or they’re overpriced, don’t believe Brandon’s lies that greedy corporations are to blame. Even though Mayor Pete has returned from paternity leave to handle the supply chain crisis, it’s still pretty bad.
