The head of the Port of Los Angeles on Tuesday urged companies to pick up their shipments in a more expedited manner to help ease congestion.

“The container dwell time is much higher than it was pre-pandemic,” Executive Director Gene Seroka said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street,” referring to the length of time a container spends at the port.

“We’re asking our importers to pick up the cargo as quickly as they can, devan the products and return those containers back to the port,” added Seroka, who has led the busiest container port in North America since 2014.
