In order to reduce the impact of port congestion of US West Coast, two extra bridge cranes would be rented by Evergreen Marine, whose general manager said at a press conference a few days ago. This can not only improve the efficiency of container loading and unloading, but also meet the demand for large-scale ship operations.
Xie Huiquan added that global maritime port congestion might continue until mid-2022, but Gene Seroka, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, believes that the chaos of the ocean shipping supply chain will continue at least until the end of 2022. Who is right? Time will witness and answer it.
Evergreen Marine has a high proportion of U.S. shipping lines. With two extra bridge cranes, there will be six bridge cranes at Los Angeles dock to load and unload the shipping containers, increasing the efficiency of operations.

The waiting time for containership at the port has changed from 2-3 days to 7-10 days. The price of container shipping has increased by 3-5 times, and it even rises by 10 times in some shipping lines.
