Cargo Crisis: how delays at coastal ports and inland depots could affect you
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis may be known as “America’s Distribution Center,” but COVID-19 is cramping the Bluff City’s style.
Local 24 News previously told you how congestion at ports on the east and west coast are causing delays, which is causing issues here in Memphis and several other inland cities.
At the Intermodal Cartage Group on Holmes Road, shipping containers are stacked up. Some are full of yet to be delivered products, others are empty waiting to be filled with exports or sent back overseas empty.
Those who work in the supply chain industry said COVID-19 has dramatically slowed down the movement of these containers across the country.
