The White House announced the update ahead of President Biden’s meeting with stakeholders, including Walmart CEO John Furner, FedEx Logistics CEO Udo Lange, and president of U.S. operations at UPS Nando Cesarone, to discuss collective efforts to address global transportation supply chain bottlenecks on Wednesday.
UPS and FedEx combined shipped 40 percent of American packages by volume in 2020, according to the White House.
Additionally, the post of Los Angeles will move into 24/7 service. The port of Long Beach has been working 24/7 for the past three weeks, the official said.
Major goods carriers Walmart, FedEx, and UPS will move to working 24 hours a day, seven days a week in order to address the global supply chain bottlenecks, the White House announced on Wednesday.
This is maybe encouraging news…but gotta ask…what took so long? And I’d have thought the port of LA would have long been working 24/7, not just the last three weeks
