Port of Long BeachKeeping on theme with 2017 trends, the Port of Long Beach has surpassed 2016 cargo volumes in the first 11 months of the year. As of November, more than 6.8 million containers moved through the port. In 2016, 6.78 million containers moved through the port for the full year. The Port of Long Beach expects to move more than 7 million containers this year. The port has consistently seen record-breaking volume numbers each month.

“One major thing to look at is the fact that with record volume for Long Beach this year, we have not seen congestion or back-ups or any of those types of issues,” Lee Peterson of the Port of Long Beach, tells GlobeSt.com. “This shows us that the terminals and the supply chain are functioning very well, in a dynamic environment. Remember, it was just April 2017 that the new ocean carrier alliances were introduced.”
