Before you political commentators share your valued positions with us, consider that the world-wide transportation infrastructure is in shambles. Ocean-borne shipping prices have skyrocketed. It's a supply-chain issue. The world's cache of twenty-foot and forty-foot marine shipping containers are sitting empty in the wrong places in great numbers. There's no containers available to carry the load. Major US ports have had their longshoreman workforce devastated by COVID illness and personnel operational restrictions, causing a backlog of vessels sitting offshore at holding anchorage 'boxes'. The Baltic Dry Index, an international marine shipping rate baseline, skyrocketed after COVID overtook the world. A forty-foot container went from something like $2500 to over $20,000 in December's spot-market pricing to ship from Asia to US West Coast. "Reading is FUNdamental!"
