Joe Biden’s Presidency has been a disaster for the American economy.
The supply chain is breaking down and inflation is skyrocketing.
But there could soon be fewer disruptions in the supply chain thanks to this amazing move by Ron DeSantis.
Working-class Americans are struggling, with the price of everything from gas to groceries soaring.
The supply-chain crisis is one of the forces driving the skyrocketing inflation.
Of course, the supply chain first started breaking down last year after the Democrat-led Democrats’ lockdowns and closures created a major backlog in shipping at ports across America.
In October, during the worst part of the supply-chain crisis, Governor Ron DeSantis stepped in and offered to open up Florida’s ports to shipping companies based out of California who weren’t allowed to operate due to the Democrats’ COVID tyranny.
DeSantis emphasized Florida’s ports as a solution to the supply-chain complications that resulted from “bad COVID policy.”
“Florida is part of the solution,” DeSantis said.
And during a recent press conference in Jacksonville, Ron DeSantis announced that Sea-Lead Shipping is moving part of their operations from California to JAXPORT in order to bypass heavy congestion at the Port of Long Beach.
“In October, in the midst of severe supply-chain disruptions, we made a public effort to get companies to bring more cargo to Florida ports, and we have seen great results,” DeSantis said.
“Florida’s continued investment in our seaports and transportation infrastructure make this exciting announcement possible,” DeSantis continued, adding that “we will continue to make infrastructure investments that keep our supply chain moving and make sure that Florida has a strong workforce ready to support these businesses moving to our state.”
Under DeSantis’ leadership, Florida’s ports have been working aggressively to expand cargo operations, with the Port of Miami recording its busiest cargo year in history in 2021, up nearly 18% from the previous year.
At Port Manatee, the first quarter of 2022 showed a 15% increase in short tons.
Wood products, which normally go into California, have been coming to Port Manatee instead.
JAXPORT CEO Eric Green praised Ron DeSantis, saying that the move would not be possible without “support from our state leaders.”
Green also said that “all eyes are on Florida” right now, saying that shipping experts believe “Jacksonville is the solution to the nation’s port congestion problem.”
Even though Florida is just one state, Ron DeSantis is doing everything he can to help ease the supply-chain disruptions that are leading to shortages and higher prices for consumers.
“On the supply-chain side, of course, we’re just one state, but we take pride in our ports. We’ve made a lot of investment in our ports, and we wanted to say Florida is part of the solution,” DeSantis said.
“You have all those ships that’ll just be sitting off the coast – California, Savannah, Georgia, wherever it is – we said we had capacity here in JaxPort and in our other ports and we stand ready to assist to make sure goods are getting to market,” DeSantis added.
