POLA and POLB report strong February volumes

February volumes at the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the Port of Long Beach (POLB) continued the strong momentum that kicked off 2016 in January, according to data respectively issued by the ports last week. POLA and POLB are the two largest North American ports, and they collectively account for more than 40 percent of U.S. imports. As previously reported, West coast port volumes, especially in first half of 2015, had been uneven, as ports had to work through the backlog caused by the nine-month West Coast port labor dispute between the PMA and ILWU, which reached a resolution in the form of a new contract agreement that was reached last spring.
