Max Armstrong looks at one industry hit hard by export shipping challenges

Max Armstrong reports on the backup of ships in ports. One industry impacted is the dairy industry, which reports that it has lost $1 billion in export business due to a lack of shipping space. However, competitors aren't seeing the same issue. A challenge is that the shipping industry is sending empty containers back from the U.S. to Asia. The Ocean Shipping Reform Act should make a difference.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
