Long Beach is a relaxed city that resides in the southeastern segment of Los Angeles County and is known for its diverse culture. The city is a leader in the freight community as it is the home to a food lot built entirely out of shipping containers. Talk about food of the future!
Thanks to its Oceanside location, the Port of Long Beach is the second busiest seaport in the U.S. and tenth busiest in the world. The port services shipping needs between the U.S. and Pacific Rim. Rail shipping is also a viable option in Long Beach and is provided by the Union Pacific Railroad and BNSF Railway.
The great city of Chicago is located near the Southern most area of Lake Michigan. This is one of the many factors that contribute to Chicago being the sixth largest export market in all the United States. So much so, that 1 in every 5 jobs in Chicago depend on imports or exports.
As we would expect for a city such as Chicago to have the greatest part of its freight transportation to be water born. Besides Chicago having a major freight rail and two major airports, where massive amounts of cargo enter and exit Chicago, its port still takes the lead. Illinois International Port is the port that moves the most cargo in all of the Great Lakes, by moving over 19 million tons of cargo per year. This massive movement of goods and products emerging from all ports in Chicago, would put Chicago among the top 36 ports in all of the United States. The cargo that embarks from these ports travel through the world, having an ever-present role in the global economy.
