Port of Los Angeles

The Port of Los Angeles is the busiest container port in the United States and together with the Port of Long Beach makes Southern California the largest gateway for U.S. imports. The port's seven container terminals are served by BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad. It is the primary destination for imports from Asia bound for the populous consumer markets of the Midwest.
