According to one freight forwarder: "If all East Coast cargo starts to come into the West Coast, those ports will be slammed and the inland transportation costs would go up dramatically... At this point anything can happen. The West Coast ports are already almost at max capacity because major retailers are already bringing their East Coast cargo in thru the West Coast to make sure their products are on shelves for the holiday season. The East Coast is wide open and rates have actually dropped significantly to those ports." The dispute may be settled before any damage is done. But, there is still time for products like board games to be MADE IN THE USA to cover any potential shortfall due to port delays.
