Sky News published this video item, entitled “US ports enter emergency measures” – below is their description.

President Biden has announced that two of the country’s busiest ports can operate around the clock, emergency measures to ease the backlog.

The backlog of cargo ships at the busiest port complex in the US – images of which have come to define the global supply chain crisis – is unlikely to return to normal before next summer.

The executive director of the Port of Long Beach in California says plans to switch to 24/7 operations, pushed by President Joe Biden this week, will improve the crisis in the short term but that logistics globally need a rethink.
