Southern California Ports Seek to Accommodate Auto Imports

According to the Journal of Commerce, “Southern California ports are expanding where they can and squeezing existing capacity to handle vehicle shipments that have risen steadily since the Great Recession. The ports of San Diego, Port Hueneme, Los Angeles, and Long Beach handled a total of nearly 1.2 million vehicle imports and exports last year. That total included about one-fourth of all vehicles shipped into the U.S. market, where sales have nearly doubled since 2009.”
