Tariffs on Chinese Goods Shift U.S. Port Volumes and Supply Chains

Tariffs on Chinese goods have shifted U.S. port volumes and continue to impact supply chains.
According to The Wall Street Journal Logistics Report, “Through the first 10 months of 2019, imports into U.S. West Coast ports overall had fallen 3% from the year before while East Coast ports saw a 5.2% boost in inbound container volumes.” By October and November, some West Coast ports saw double-digit monthly declines.
