Recently, as American companies replenish inventory and related retailers are preparing for the upcoming Halloween and Christmas, the port of Los Angeles’s imports are increasing sharply.


   Los Angeles Port workers unloaded 471,795 TEU of imported goods in September, an increase of 17% over the same period last year. This marked the second consecutive month of strong growth in imports from the largest port in the US trade with China.


  Gene Seroka, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, said that this trend has continued into October. Currently, there are 16 ships docked in the Port of Los Angeles and 10 ships are berthed waiting to be discharged.


   Seroka said, "We continue to see the replenishment of inventory in warehouses and distribution centers, and retailers are also preparing for the year-end holiday."


   American retailers such as Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target and Best Buy plan to launch holiday promotions before Halloween to ease the current tension of home delivery.


   The surge in goods may affect the US supply chain.


   Currently, Los Angeles port workers are racing against time to handle incoming containers, and the arrival of 18 unplanned ships in August and September has made labor dispatch more complicated.


   The United States’ new crown prevention measures require reducing port staffing and port workers must keep a certain distance, which means that it takes longer to transport containers out of the port.
