Los Angeles has one of the largest and busiest ports in the United States. Development of intermodal facilities, where shipping containers are transferred between rail and trucks, and adjacent logistics parks is a trend that is being seen across the country. Intermodal container shipments increased 37% in the last 5 years. The vast majority of goods manufactured in Asia arrive in ports on the west coast. This trend is changing the face of the bulk distribution sector. For more information on the Port of Los Angeles.
