Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Pandemic fuels consumer demand with shipping backlog” – below is their description.
The pandemic kept many consumers indoors and online, shopping for goods.
Economically, that seems like a good thing, but it has caused a backlog of items arriving at US ports.
And competition for scarce spots on shipping vessels has caused the price of shipping to skyrocket.
As Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports form Los Angeles, the effects can be felt from corporate boardrooms to kitchen tables.
