Scrap Chat: Virtual Fly-In Addressing Shipping and Container Issues
The U.S. recycling industry, like most other export-involved industries across the country, is facing severe challenges with port congestion, shipping bottlenecks, and related direct and indirect costs. With over 30% of the recycling industry being export-involved, these issues have had a major impact in the ability of businesses in our industry to operate in a predictable, stable market environment.
This week ISRI and several of our trade-oriented member companies are advocating on the issues and urging Congress to enable the appropriate federal agencies to provide sensible solutions that will alleviate the costly pressures on affected business in your state and across the nation.
In this episode of Scrap Chat, Sean Daoud provides his thoughts on why he is participating in this week's virtual fly-in, and the importance of sharing your story as recyclers.
