Retailers and consumers alike have concerns about access to goods and gifts as the holidays approach. The “Retail Grinch” seems set on robbing us all of our collaborative seasonal joy.

The solution to the current supply chain crisis isn’t easily identifiable because it won’t be solved by a single action. That said, convincing Congress to address the matter just might be the way out. WR has joined with other organizations, businesses, and retail customers in literally sending a message to Congress, and you can too. The three areas we are urging our lawmakers to take action on include:

  • Passing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework, which will update and modernize America’s ports, roads, bridges, rail lines, and more.
  • Passing the DRIVE-Safe Act, which will add more truck drivers to our understaffed workforce.
  • Update the Shipping Act by passing the bipartisan Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021, making it possible to cut through the unfair business practices of the ocean carriers and terminal operators.

Using this direct response tool, make your voice heard, and be a part of the solution by sending an SOS to Congress – Save Our Shipments.
