Another port crisis.

America has never imported goods as it is doing now. Amazing you would say. No. This is not amazing, amazing is that America's port infrastructure is NOT ready to handle this kind of traffic. Watching CNN headlines news, I learnt a large cargo ship contains enough number of containers to stretch out over 20 miles. And infrastructure at ports are not able to clear out this kind of unloading and adding too much pressure on the existing infrastructure. Neither are the highways and rail roads ready to support this kind of movement and distribution. I think its a boom time for truck drivers.
