Walmart, Target and other big retailers would also expand their overnight operations at the ports to try to meet delivery needs, Biden said.

“If federal support is needed, I’ll direct all appropriate action, and if the private sector doesn’t step up, we’re going to call them out and ask them to act,” the president said in remarks at the White House.
