LA Port Backlog Could Reverse Progress on Cleaner Air

By City News Service

LOS ANGELES—The Port of Los Angeles said today that the cargo surge in 2021 will likely reverse some of its progress toward achieving cleaner air at and around the port.

“Operational efficiency benefits both business and the environment,” said Port Director of Environmental Management Christopher Cannon. “The heavy volume of inbound cargo has led to disruptions across the supply chain, and those impacts will be reflected in next year’s [Inventory of Air Emissions report].”

President Joe Biden announced on Oct. 13 that the port would begin operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week as part of a push from the White House to clear supply chain disruptions threatening the holiday shopping season and slowing the nation’s economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
