A system outage at one of the Port of Los Angeles’ seven container terminals caused a massive backlog of trucks Thursday trying to enter the port, but officials said the issue had been resolved by early afternoon.

Video from the scene showed hundreds of trucks caught in the traffic backlog, waiting to enter the port. Trucks were backed up to Highway 47, and port police were assisting with traffic control.

A port representative said the issue was IT-related, but the exact nature of the problem was unclear.

Port officials said the system outage lasted about 90 minutes, but it was repaired by early afternoon. Trucks were again moving in and out of the port, and authorities were working to alleviate the lingering traffic jam.
