The latest import volume data reveals a narrative of continuous transformation:

  • Revitalization of Pacific Ports: Efficiency milestones achieved by the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports signal a resurgence in West Coast ocean freight market share.
  • Constraints of the Panama Canal: The Panama Canal, suffering reduced water levels, prompted rerouting preferences towards Pacific pathways.
  • Rate Resilience: With West Coast spot rates demonstrating stability, strategic shifts in shipping patterns emerge, favoring Pacific entries.
