Focus on International Trade

   

Custom Content from the Los Angeles Business Journal
The Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach combine to make our region’s sea ports complex the largest in the Western Hemisphere, handling over 40% of all inbound containers for the entire United States. Over time, a sophisticated and mature logistics economy has developed around these ports, including high-capacity rail networks, endless warehousing and distribution options, and businesses that have located in Los Angeles County to leverage this infrastructure. Over 160,000 workers in L.A. County alone support the international trade sector. With this remarkable commitment to international trade in Los Angeles, it made sense that we feature a focus section on the topic. We hope you find the following pages – featuring content from the Port itself and other relevant experts – of interest.
