DeSantis Invites Shipping Companies To Florida Ports As Vessels Idle In California Backlogs October 19, 2021 By Elle Reynolds
Amid a global supply chain shortage and backlogs in states like California, Florida ports are taking on extra vessels and offering incentives to companies to send their goods through ports in the Sunshine State, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced at a press conference in Jacksonville, Fla. on Tuesday.
“We in Florida have the ability to help alleviate these logjams,” DeSantis said. “We’re here, we have capacity. And not only that, I’m proud to announce … that JAXPORT and some of the other ports are also stepping up even above and beyond by offering incentive packages to businesses who want to move their cargo through these ports.”
Leaders from ports around the state joined DeSantis to urge companies that “we want your business.”
As DeSantis noted, German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd last week rerouted its Atlantic Loop 3 to go through the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT). “The service call will last for at least eight weeks and bring an estimated 1,000 additional containers a week through JAXPORT,” reported the Ponte Vedra Recorder.
Additionally, “Port Everglades recently accommodated the MSC Stella container ship with nearly 7,000 containers this past weekend and the MSC Susanna container ship with 9,200 containers is arriving this weekend from India via the Suez Canal,” DeSantis said.
EnochWalked: It does feel like the very notion of time is being messed with, like there's a battle between the days being shortened and the days being lengthened. Perhaps Covid lockdowns have changed weather patterns? Very coincidental timing otherwise.

EnochWalked: It's really difficult to define a "neutral" stance, because children don't need to know that their teacher has a homosexual partner, but should be able to hear that a teacher believes in Jesus. Silence is itself a religious/political position.
