Zepol has conducted some analysis on US ports. While the horror stories emanating from the west coast are being well-reported, daily, less noted are the benefits coming to other ports. US imports in general were 12% lower, year-on-year, in January, with the port of Long Beach taking the biggest hit – down 35% – while LA saw a 26% fall in imports. But the port of Houston enjoyed a 26% surge in January, and Savannah’s imports rose 24%. Over in New York/New Jersey, there was a rather more modest increase of 6%. Interesting analysis which paints a more balanced picture of the US as a whole.
