A record 164 cargo ships were reportedly waiting off California’s coast on Wednesday to unload goods as President Biden’s supply chain crisis persists.

According to Marine Exchange, 164 cargo ships were waiting to unload containers onto the docks. Of the 164, 109 were container ships, which includes 79 anchored or loitering and 30 at berth.

Wednesday’s record beats the November 5 record when 159 ships were waiting to offload containers. On October 19, 100 ships were delayed from unloading freight, another record-breaking amount. October’s numbers are greater than September’s. On September 25, 60 ships were reportedly waiting to unload goods.

The backlog of transatlantic shipping at the southern California ports is presumably driving the supply chain crisis and exacerbating inflation. The southern California ports are responsible for 40 percent of all shipped containers to the United States. If goods are stuck at the ports, prices are impacted by the lack of supply.

The ships seem unable to offload the goods because the ports are jammed with containers waiting for truckers to drive the freight to locations around the nation. But the ports appear to be struggling to efficiently move the containers from the ships to trucks or trains.

Truck drivers have complained they wait for hours to pick up a load of freight at the ports, which prohibits their productivity. With delays impacting drivers’ ability to earn a living, the trucking industry is facing a 30 percent labor shortage or 80,000 drivers in real numbers.
