Update on shipping container shortage: new containers are coming in

One of the world’s largest shipping container companies says that it has started to receive newly-ordered boxes.

The shortage is causing traffic jams at ports around the world. In America, west coast ports are like parking lots.

It is causing anxiety for producers, as ag products sit at port while carriers wait on containers.

The shortage has caused freight costs to skyrocket.

A German shipping company says that it has ordered nearly 160,000 containers. They are made in China and should continue to arrive through the rest of the year.
