On Wednesday, the White House announced that the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach will both be expanding operations to 24 hours-7 days a week. Historically, neither port has operated at that level, despite other ports around the world doing so. With the addition of new off-peak night time shifts and weekend hours, it is anticipated that the number of available hours that cargo can move out of docks and onto highways should double; at the same time, congestion during peak day windows should ease.
