Volume Up At Port Of Los Angeles, Down At The Port Of Long Beach
Kinghood International Logistics Inc | Updated: Dec 28, 2016


Changing alliances in the shipping world and the financial collapse of Hanjin Shipping look to be rewarding the Port of Los Angeles and hurting its competitor, the Port of Long Beach.


Cargo figures released Wednesday show the Los Angeles port increased volume by 7 percent through November of this year, compared with its neighbor’s nearly 6 percent decline in the same period.


Long Beach is ending the year with several setbacks. The port lost its executive director, John Slangerup, in September, just weeks after a major customer, 

Hanjin Shipping, declared bankruptcy. Hanjin alone accounted for 12.3 percent of Long Beach’s containerized volume — and also has a majority stake in the port’s largest terminal, officials said.


Long Beach port officials cite numerous challenges that contributed to cargo losses, including the recent incidences of ocean carriers merging and reorganizing into 

new alliances and the realignment of shipping routes.


The Port of Long Beach also experienced its second best November in 2015, pushing container volume to 7 million units for just the third time in its history, officials said.
