In L.A., It's All About Networking.

For more than a decade, the Port of Los Angeles has moved more containers than any other port in the nation, setting and breaking its own cargo-handling records. With state-of-the-art facilities under continuous modernization, the Port of Los Angeles has heavily invested in capital improvements to ensure that shippers worldwide have the advantage of at least three major business drivers: superior cargo terminals, rail and warehouse infrastructure, and services between dock and destination. The L.A. Trade Gateway is the best option for moving cargo in and out of the most heavily populated region in the western U.S. and beyond. The Port of Los Angeles is home to the nation’s largest on-dock rail assets, providing the highest frequency of intermodal access to 14 major freight hubs across the United States.

Promotion of commercial facilities is complemented by one of the widest and most sophisticated marketing and customer service networks of any port in the world. Providing comprehensive, computerized shipping and transportation database information, the Port is able to respond quickly to a wide range of inquiries, ensuring the efficient movement of import and export cargo. The marketing team's customer service office provides referrals for virtually every link of the transportation chain.

The Port's customer service center is the first "port-of-call" for anyone needing precise, accurate and immediate answers to shipping and transportation questions. This state-of-the-art computer database is continually updated and includes information on:

  • Port facilities
  • Shipping lines, services and worldwide ports of call
  • Shipping agents and freight forwarders
  • Trucking companies
  • Railroad companies, services and timetables
  • Warehousing facilities
  • Trade support and other commercial assistance
  • Financing referrals
  • International marketing and market research firms
