That has been the advertised price here for years as well. Until about 2 months ago, now $4000 is the starting price. Last week or 2 a add wanting to buy your box starting at 4000, any amount of them. Like they are really in demand. As they say the only thing constant is change.

Wait until these ships finally get offloaded, then run home to reload with NEW containers the Chinese are now making, the sales prices will plummet.

MOST of the CRAP is shipped OUT of CHina and INTO Europe and America... Only mkes sense to build the CANS in CHINA... We dont need MORE in the USA ............ trouble is they are all setting on ships outside the dock... once EVERYTHING is unloaded, we will have a GLUT... and CHINA will need MORE cans.

I’ve Been in working in the Intermodal Industry driving a Truck for the same company for 24yrs and I’ve never seen it so messed up in my career. Customers canceling load because workers do not show up. Steamship lines rolling booking numbers because the Customers can get the Container they order loaded in time and it missed the train. Container yards including our has no equipment and a Big Chassis shortage. This morning already my load was canceled because of the chassis/ Container set up was used for a more important customer happens all the time. Then I was waiting on some Grain loads we transload from or Depo it fell through because of Billing but my faithful Dispatcher found me a load going to Godfrey Illinois. It’s a messed up world. Here’s a pic of the Truck I drive every day.

YEP... seen a couple articles that say there is no shortage of truck or CANS  compared to before the pandemic... The DEMAND is 30% greater.. Too much BUYING.. 30% MORE CANS to get unloaded.. Some trucks are waiting for a load... Most are on the road running.. They need MORE TRUCKS and DRIVERS, but it is NOT a shortage compared to a year ago... its MORE DEMAND. ................. thats what you get for $6 TRILLION.

Sorry Stevo, I was JUST informed today that there are MULTIPLE cargo ships circling off the coast of California that CAN NOT be off loaded due to lack of crane operators  AND truck drivers to take the off-loaded containers away CryCry

NOPE.... not enough hours in a day... The work 12 or 16 hours... NEW PLAN is to be open 24 hours........ Union is working on that now....WAY MORE CANS than there were 12 months ago... Not enough hours in the day to unload them all......... and of course there wont be enough truckers if they were ALL FULL and then capacity goes up 30% !!

TODAY---------
President Joe Biden announced a new plan to begin 24-hour operations at the Port of Los Angeles to ease the bottleneck of cargo ships amid the growing supply chain crisis.

"Today we have some good news. We're going to help speed up the delivery of goods, all across America," Biden said.

The Port of L.A. will increase its operation hours by 60 hours a week by staying open at night and over the weekend.

Ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach, California account for 40 percent of all shipping containers entering the United States.

-------------------------

Full year growth figures for the volume of containers shipped around the world are showing considerable divergence among analysts.

Alphaliner is predicting 5.8% year-on-year growth. Overall, the top 20 container ports handled 13% more twenty-foot boxes in the first six months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020, new analysis from Alphaliner shows.

The most startling figures from Alphaliner’s port data on the first six months come from the United States where Los Angeles/Long Beach and New York/New Jersey recorded year-on-year throughput growth of 41% and 31% respectively.

Part of the news today also included getting more drivers in the trucks, I just wonder with all the rules and regulations and requirements to get a license now where are these drivers suppose to come from? And another thing is California regulations on what trucks can haul off the docks and in state.

Plus the dock rules that all trucks must be 2011 or newer, no owner operators , and there is some new type of tax drivers are avoiding .

West Coast emissions rules are slowing everything down, freight into CA as well as supplies of goods NOT produced there so the inevitable begins to fall apart.

What has that got to do with anything Steve Noted?  You really need to see a Mental Health care person as that(Highlight Red Print) comment is leaning to deranged.

There’s a backlog of cans because of all the new orders of success, equality, wealth, prosperity, hope, and dreams furnished by the gubermint that will lead to the utopia we will all find ourselves living in just shortly.
