    Port of Los Angeles

    The Port of Los Angeles said its exports surged 14.5% last year, a second straight record.

    Imports rose 2.3% from 2010, to 4.07 million twenty-foot equivalent units, while exports totaled 2.11 million TEUs for the year.

    December volume included a 9.2% gain in exports, while imports rose 6.4% from the same month a year earlier, the port said.

    The gains are “an example of how [the [port] is prepared to handle a shift in global trade patterns,” the port’s executive director, Geraldine Knatz, said in a statement.

    The Port of Los Angeles and neighboring Port of Long Beach make up the largest U.S. container port complex.
