The US President said the action against supply chains snarls has done a far worse job, ahead of a meeting Wednesday with its official representatives, and representatives from the private sector, including FedEx.

Biden created a task force in June to deal with high prices and labor cost-related problems with the shortages of commodities, as well as crucial components of the project.

After pushing for a new transportation system, and enlisting the help of big retailers including Walmart and Target, the White House says it has made significant progress.

The badly-predictted disaster didnt happen, Biden said. Packages were moving, gifts are being delivered and shelves arent empty, he said. He says Shelves at grocery and drug stores stocked at 90% of its capacity and deliveries are happening faster than before the pandemic.

The White House said that the total number of goods moving through Southern California ports faster, and the wait time for shiploaders has been reduced to six thousand eight nine.

Fred Smith says supply-chain issues are "not all solved" but that "the majority of Santa Claus' products will be delivered to the consumer."

The inflation pressure should take a stand, he said. "We think that the peak season will be good."

Last month, CEO of Walmart, Doug McMillon said that a decision to extend port hours had a positive impact on the goods' flow.

Retailers started an early Christmas Promotion, to lower the burden of the surcharged supply chain.

After the administration started intervening, thousands of imported containers have been cleared from docks, but the busiest U.S. seaport complex of Los Angeles/Long Beach continues to grapple with a flood of empty containers and around 90 containers waiting for the unloaders to get onboard.

Currently, supply-chain problems affect many of the U.S. economy. Reuters reported this week that, and retailers and farmers, have been slammed during COVID-19 due to high commodity prices, labor shortages and shortage of transportation and supply-chain snarls that hinder them from taking part in the holiday season.

Even though the profits of the company total have already been strong, majority of the S&P 500 companies beat analysts' third-quarter expectations.


The large part of the shipping crisis resulted from the pandemic. Homebound Americans with unpaid travel and entertainment dollars, and government stimulus checks splurged on everything, from food and fridges to exercise equipment. The demand for imported goods overwhelmed supply chains.

He has also sought to investigate the potential illegal conduct in the oil-and-gas markets.

The specialisms of agriculture, commerce, and labour, among the meetings, and the National Economic Council Director Brian Deese and the Port Envoy John Porcari attended Wednesday's meeting.

Also joined were chief executives of the clothing store Gap Inc, the Kansas-based trucking company Yellow Corp and the American Association of Port Authorities.

In his comments on Wednesday, the White House said fuel prices have dropped by 12 cents per gallon on average to $3.30 since last month's peak.
