Ports along the West Coast are seeing backups again as we move out of summer and into the start of peak shipping season. The East Coast is no different, with ships stacking up off the Georgia coast and outside the ports of New York and New Jersey. 

How will this peak season stack up to last year’s holiday rush? Andrew Cox and Anthony Smith discuss that with FreightWaves’ Air Cargo Editor Eric Kulisch.
