"During the time when China was locking down manufacturing in its response to COVID, there was comparitively little cargo being shipped to the ports."
First, there was a lot being shipped to the ports. Secondly, it was the chickenshtting of the truckers that moved about 1/3 of the shipments POLA would have gotten to port of Seattle for one. Once port of Miami fully opened, companies would go through the Panama Canal just to NOT use POLA. The ports per se may have not been locked down, but the imposed working conditions in essence shut them down by a near work stoppage. You may be essential, but you don't have a union to back you.
