    OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Bill Aboudi has already had a difficult couple of years battling the COVID-19 pandemic and the supply chain issue that came as a result of it. Now he faces the possibility of losing nearly his entire fleet.The California Air Resources Board is requiring semi-trucks and other diesel commercial vehicles to have engine models of 2010 or newer by the start of next year.

"Only two of my 13 trucks will be compliant next year."He is the President of AB Trucking in Oakland. His company mainly serves carriers coming to and from the Port of Oakland. Aboudi says new trucks are expensive and hard to find."We are a local company and we mostly use hand me down trucks," he said. "A $30,000 truck is going for over $100,000 right now."

    HAMMONTON, N.J. (CBS) — Valentine’s Day is a week away, but even cupid can’t control the supply chain issue that’s been hitting businesses — and your wallet — hard. Eyewitness News went to a local florist to see how they are handling the holiday rush.

Everything is all involved, and you can’t get the help to load the trucks, to load the planes.” By comparison, in February of 2020 — the last pre-pandemic Valentine’s Day — the roses they’re waiting for were already there and ready to go. “They would be ready, you know, you’d be getting ready to fill those vases,” Ordille said.

    CNBC noted that the Federal Aviation Administration has indeed warned that potential interference could affect sensitive airplane instruments such as altimeters, which measure the distance from the bottom of an aircraft to the ground during low visibility operations. As of Sunday, the FAA had only cleared an estimated 45% of the U.S. commercial airplane fleet to perform low-visibility landings at airports where the 5G service would be deployed. "This means that on a day like yesterday, more than 1,100 flights and 100,000 passengers would be subjected to cancellations, diversions, or delays," the CEOs cautioned in the letter, adding, "Immediate intervention is needed to avoid significant operational disruption to air passengers, shippers, supply chain and delivery of needed medical supplies." The letter was sent to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Stephen Dickson, and Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel.Anything else?As a way to avoid catastrophe, the airline CEOs urged that the rollout be delayed once again to give more time for the aviation industry to make necessary adjustments. Earlier this month, Verizon...
    Voters in battleground states are feeling the effects of supply chain bottlenecks and expect lawmakers to tackle the issue ahead of the 2022 midterms, according to a new Consumer Brands Association survey conducted by Morning Consult. The poll, which questioned voters in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and New Hampshire, found that roughly 7 in 10 respondents have experienced shortages at grocery stores, and around half said that supply chain issues have had a “major” or “big” impact on their ability to get critical products. “Once invisible to consumers, the pandemic and holiday shipping crunch have unmasked the supply chain and made it kitchen table conversation,” Consumer Brands Association President Geoff Freeman said in a statement. “Voters have exhausted their patience with years of government inaction, and elected officials can’t afford to lose sight of the supply chain after New Year’s Day.” Nine in 10 voters in the battleground states said it is important to expand trucking capacity to help fix supply chain issues, and nearly 70 percent said they would be more likely to back candidates who support measures to boost trucking...
    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Friday continued to emphasize the importance of ending the ongoing coronavirus pandemic to fix the supply chain issues around the United States. Earlier this week, Buttigieg stressed that the “only way” to solve the supply chain issues the nation has been experiencing was “to end the pandemic.” The transportation secretary doubled down on that remark, telling CBS’s “Mornings” that was why the White House has been pushing its vaccination campaign. “I break it down into three parts,” Buttigieg said when asked what the Biden administration was doing to solve the issue. “First of all, we’ve got to deal with the pandemic. This is largely a pandemic-driven set of issues, so the surest way to deal with it is to end the pandemic, which is why we have this vaccination campaign and everything else we’re doing. That’s the first part.” “The second part, of course, is that we can’t wait,” he continued. “So, there are immediate actions like what’s in the president’s port action plan. We’re seeing sweeper ships going around to pick up empty containers...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Another busy day at Modloft, a Miami-based online/offline luxury furniture store. There have been record sales during the pandemic. Folks stuck at home have been upgrading their home furnishing. READ MORE: Experts: Want To Help Fight Climate Change? Plant A Tree, Not A Palm TreeBut then for Modloft CEO Ted Toledano, reality hit – the supply chain broke down. Overseas, COVID forced factories to shut down ports. Stalled goods bound for America were caught in a logjam.  “If you were able to secure your order, freight and bringing goods into the country, the rates of bringing them in were four times higher than normal rates,” Toledano told CBSMiaimi. Here in the United States, a lack of drivers hogtied the trucking industry. Due to COVID, warehouse workers are in short supply. So what to do? Modloft made a big decision. “The first thing we did was ramp up production on shore in the U.S. and to an extent Mexico,” said Toledano.  READ MORE: Some Charges Dropped Against Pregnant Doral Teacher Heiry Calvi, Accused Of Inappropriate Relation With TeenModloft...
    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — While freighters languish in the waters off the Southern California coast, Port Of Oakland officials issued a plea Tuesday to shipping companies, asking them to reroute their vessels to the empty docks of their massive facility. The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are now running 24/7 operations on the orders of President Joe Biden, hoping to end the backlog of ships and their cargo which has led to nationwide shortages and raising consumer prices.

That’s not case in Oakland, the West Coast’s second largest shipping facility. “There’s no congestion at the Oakland seaport, and we’re ready for more business,” Port of Oakland Maritime Director Bryan Brandes said in news release. “We need ocean carriers to reinstate services in order to stabilize the supply chain, and our import and export partners echo this sentiment.” The Port said containerized cargo volume is up 4.2 percent in 2021 but insisted there’s capacity for...
    President Joe Biden and his administration have not taken responsibility for the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the resulting supply chain crisis, including Vice President Kamala Harris, who said on Wednesday that workers not making enough money is partly to blame. “Empty shelves for consumers and missing parts for local manufacturers — it all adds up to inconvenience and now an inflation rate of 5.4 percent in September,” the CBS station in western Pennsylvania said ahead of its interview with Harris. “On Wednesday, President Joe Biden said the delays in unloading ships with products at America’s ports require a 24/7 approach, nonstop unloading of ships.” The interviewer asked Harris what she and the Biden administration are doing “to alleviate these problems in western Pennsylvania and throughout the nation?” Harris deflected the question by claiming the problem started before she and Biden were elected. “It’s a big issue for western Pennsylvania, throughout the nation, and actually a global issue,” Harris said. “The supply chain issue also actually predated the pandemic but it’s been highlighted during the pandemic.” Containers are piling up at...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Consumers across the Pittsburgh area are feeling the impact of supply chain shortages.

    Jamie Dimon is optimistic that global supply chain snarls will soon go away. During a conference hosted by the Institute of International Finance, the billionaire CEO of JPMorgan Chase said that although frayed supply chains from the COVID-19 pandemic are still creating problems for consumers, he thinks those issues will resolve sooner rather than later. “I should never do this, but I’ll make a forecast,” Dimon said on Monday. “This will not be an issue next year at all. This is the worst part of it. I think great market systems will adjust for it like companies have.” JPMORGAN CEO JAMIE DIMON SAYS BITCOIN REGULATION IS INEVITABLE During his appearance at the conference, Dimon expressed enthusiasm about the future of the U.S. economy. He said his prediction for increased economic growth is buoyed by U.S. consumers and their appetite for spending money, noting that people are spending 20% more now than before the pandemic. “Keep in mind, the consumer’s buying other stuff,” the JPMorgan boss said. “They can’t buy cars, they’re buying home improvement....
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government is working to draw attention to supply chain vulnerabilities, an issue that received particular attention late last year after suspected Russian hackers gained access to federal agencies and private corporations by sneaking malicious code into widely used software. The National Counterintelligence and Security Center warned Thursday that foreign hackers are increasingly targeting vendors and suppliers that work with the government to compromise their products in an effort to steal intellectual property and carry out espionage. The NCSC said it is working with other agencies, including the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, to raise awareness of the supply chain issue. April marks what the government is describing as the fourth annual National Supply Chain Integrity Month. This year’s event comes as federal officials deal with the aftermath of the SolarWinds intrusion, in which hackers compromised the software supply chain through malware. At least nine federal agencies were hacked, along with dozens of private-sector companies. The NCSC said it plans to issue guidance throughout the month about how specific sectors, like health care and energy, can...
