Slow Shipping? What are you waiting for

The port of LA has a backlog of over 50 70 boats deep sitting at sea waiting to dock. Usually there are only a few to none.

That is a lot of stuff to unload—how many shipping containers can be processed in a day?

Hope it can happen soon, i’m waiting on some Lume so my privates won’t stink…

Now i used to think that i was cool,
drivin' around on fossil fuel,
until i saw what i was doin',
was drivin' down the road to ruin. --JT

I'm waiting for a Trustfire MiniX and some watch screen protectors, both from AliExpress.

I could be waiting for quite a while because there is a truck driver shortage in the U.S. (and other countries as well.)

The last I heard, most petrol stations in the U.K. had no petrol because of a truck driver shortage over there.

Last AX order I placed, using the free/economy shipping, arrived after 3.5 weeks.

A couple before that was combined and upgraded to standard shipping by AX, and took about two weeks.

Another order placed the same day as those two, from a “US warehouse” only beat them by a day.

Prior to that, a Sofirn order took about two weeks.

The channels used to ferry the stuff usually bought here don’t seem to be slow, or abnormal in my experience.

I read today that the waiting time for a ship to dock at the L.A. port is now 10 days.

For comparison, in normal times there is no wait.

USPS is slow and going to get slower according to them. The international shipping is ok. There are people in a nearby town that don’t receive their mail for days. $18 / hour to start and no one wants it.
