U.S. Ports Traffic Cleared-out; NO Ships waiting - NO Freight Moving - NO Goods Coming in

I received the following from a Reader/Subscriber to this website, who has contacts in the Ocean Freight Business.  He says, "If you need anything, you'd better get it now" -- It seems NO FREIGHT is coming into the country!

Subject: Port information

I got your email from the subscription email that you sent me.

Thought that you might like to know the below information.  At Covid peak there were up to 80 container ships at anchor off of Long Beach and Los Angeles ports now there are none. I spoke with a gentleman that use to own a freight forwarding company and is still involved in freight forwarding. He stated that in his 30 years plus that he has never seen anything like this and if you need anything you better buy it now.
