In recent weeks, the port congestion in the West Coast has become national news as the holiday season approaches. Major retailers worry they won’t have products on their shelves during the all-important fourth quarter.
According to Marine Exchange of Southern California, the higher the number of ships waiting offshore, the bigger the queue and the longer it takes for a vessel to get a berth. In September, the average wait time to reach a berth in Los Angeles (30-day rolling average) rose to an all-time high of nine days. And some importers said they ordering product in November in hopes of receiving product by June—seven months later.
Flooring distributors say they already expect the backlog to last well into 2022 and beyond. They already send POs for Vinyl Click Flooring to China flooring suppliers.
So we GILARDINO advice oversea partners make the PO plans of Rigidcore Click Flooring in advance for forth quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2022.
