A coalition of US farmers expressed concerns that the country’s logistics infrastructure is outdated and inadequate, leading to domestic business losing out to imports. Consistent bottlenecks and delays within the system caused by surging imports have led to a slow and unreliable supply chain. They believe that a lack of equipment and a failure of port authorities to redevelop and update terminals have been causing major congestion at rail terminals. The issue of scalability, i.e. the ability to handle the larger containerships at existing terminals, was identified as a key challenge.
