The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles represent the greatest gateway for ocean trade in the U.S. as they together handle more than one-third of inbound containers. While global supply chain issues persist, these ports reported a record January with Long Beach, in particular, moving 4.8% more containers than this time last year. Are we moving in the right direction now? Join Executive Director of the Port of Long Beach, Mario Cordero, to discuss his current outlook on port operations, the fate of the proposed container dwell time fee, and what the planned $450 million in grants from USDOT means for U.S. ports.
By the end of last year, the long-awaited $1 trillion infrastructure policy bill was signed into law, the holiday season saw the vast majority of packages delivered with minimal delays, and the USDOT announced more than $241 million in grants to domestic ports. USDOT collaborated with transportation stakeholders to form a supply chain crisis response team and an action plan that would alleviate bottlenecks and strengthen the workforce. What are the next steps in the action plan? Join Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to discuss the implementation of the infrastructure policy bill and the path to a stronger supply chain.

Will the newly signed infrastructure bill, in particular the DRIVE Safe Act, positively impact trucking and the labor shortage? Bob Costello, ATA Chief Economist, joins TT’s Dan Ronan to discuss the challenges of the past year and his perspective on the opportunities to come in 2022.
