Los Angeles Port, a major clog in the global supply chain, has been named one of the world's least efficient ports.
According to a report by the World Bank and IHS Markit, which reviewed 351 container ports around the world, LA was ranked 328th, behind that a port in Tanzania.
The adjacent port of Long Beach came in even lower, at 333rd.
The ports in LA and Long Beach make up some 40 percent of all shipping containers entering the U.S.
The top port honors on the ranking went to Japan's Yokohama and Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah.
