Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis offered Florida ports a potential solution, announcing that ports are open and offering businesses incentives to move their cargo through.
“We in Florida have the ability to help alleviate these log jams and help to ameliorate the problems with the supply chain,” DeSantis said during a press conference at JAXPORT on Tuesday
“Florida’s here. We got capacity, and we’ve also got incentive packages to make it worth your while to be able to bring your business to our ports,” he added.
