Ports on the US East Coast are now dealing with the same container ship congestion woes that plagued West Coast ports during the pandemic as shippers reroute cargoes there in search of less crowded terminals.

Georgia’s Port of Savannah is particularly congested, as 40 vessels waited for berths on Friday, according to port data. The port saw its box volume rise to 5.76m teu in the fiscal year ending 30 June, an 8% jump from the prior 12 months.
