However, Wells still can't access the container, and it's been weeks.
Due to the nation's labor shortage, it's sitting in a shipping yard that's labeled "non-deliverable."
"I've spoken with the shipping line, with the trucking companies, with the freight, everybody. Nobody can explain it ... why there's this portion of the Port of LA, the yard, that's 'non-deliverable,'" he explained.
According to Freightos - an online freight marketplace - shipping a 40-foot container from China to the West Coast cost $1,318 in October 2019.
Now, it costs more than $16,000.
Plus, in Nov. 2019, a container from China to the U.S. would take 41 days, on average, to ship. Now, it takes 75 days.

Supply chain issues are being felt almost everywhere, including at schools.
The Los Angeles Unified School District said school meals are being impacted due to packaging, supply, and labor shortages.
In a statement, LAUSD said, "We have had to find alternatives for various products, like apple sauce, pre-made entrees and fresh-cut vegetables. Food services has deployed all staff, including the director to schools to serve meals and temporary workers have been hired where needed to support our food services staff and robust food efforts."
Goods aren't just harder to find, they're also becoming more expensive.
Gene Seroka, the executive director of the Port of L.A., told Good Morning America on Thursday that shoppers will find the goods they're looking for this holiday season, but urges them to start looking now.
"Let's do it a little bit early," he said. "Look online. See how long it's going to take to deliver the goods, maybe this weekend. Let's go to the store and see what the products look like so we can get holiday gifts for friends and family."
