Ports may see rise in cargo

Import cargo volume at the nation’s major retail container ports, including the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, “could see its first year-over-year increases in more than two years beginning in early 2010,” according to a report mentioned in a news release by National Retail Federation. A large portion of the Inland Empire’s logistics business sector depends on exports and imports at the ports.  “This could be the turnaround we’ve been waiting to see for a long time,” said Jonathan Gold, NRF vice president for supply chain and customs policy, in the release.  “There’s not enough data yet to establish a clear trend, but we’re hopeful that this is a sign of recovery.”
