The railroad tracks are a wasteland of discarded cartons, envelopes and boxes. Pieces of clothing lie disgorged from packaging and tossed aside. A family photograph, propped up in the garbage, stands sentimental to someone, somewhere, but of no interest to those who loot the tracks of Lincoln Heights.


Yantian Limits Export Boxes as Chinese Ports Struggle with Congestion

China ports are continuing to struggle with the pressures on the supply chain with the challenges being compounded both by the rush to get goods shipped before the Lunar New Year holiday and the growing number of cases of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus. Four of China’s largest port regions have all reported cases of the virus and limited lockdowns in recent days while others such as Ningbo-Zhoushan continue to struggle with the backlogs created by recent disruptions.


Lawmakers Step Up Tariff-Exclusion Talk

A bipartisan group of House lawmakers urged U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai to expand and expedite a tariff exclusion process for goods produced in China. On Thursday, Reps. Ron Kind (D-Wisc.), Darin LaHood (R-Ill.), Suzan DelBene (D-Wash.), and Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.), along with 137 of their colleagues, asked the USTR’s office to establish a “comprehensive and fair” process to exempt products from Section 301 tariffs.
