Your Trade Gateway
The Port of Los Angeles moves more containers than any other port in the Western Hemisphere and is North America’s largest trade gateway based on container volumes and value of trade. With state-of-the-art facilities under continuous modernization, we annually invest in capital improvements to ensure that shippers worldwide have access to a broad selection of carrier and service offerings, superior cargo terminals, outstanding rail transport to and from the U.S. interior, robust drayage resources and an unmatched regional portfolio of warehouse and distribution centers.
With the nation’s largest on-dock rail assets, we offer the highest frequency of intermodal access to 14 major freight hubs across the U.S. Our growing digital technology infrastructure — including the Port Optimizer™ port community system — provides shippers and their supply chain partners reliability, predictability and line-of-sight planning capabilities that help assure maximum cargo efficiency and speed to market.
