There doesn’t seem to be a slowdown in US exports if one looks at volume of outbound containers leaving the Port of L.A – one of our largest freight port.

There are increasing fears of another recession.  It is understandable in light of the slowdown evidenced in economic metrics from July and August.  One encouraging stat is the number of containers being shipped out of Los Angeles.  These tend to be manufactured goods.  The trend is up.  August shipments were challenging the record high set earlier this year.  Don’t be too quick to assume the U.S. will return to recession status.  Jeb Terry, Sr. Sept 21, 2011
