NFI Industries’ California Cartage subsidiary will exit its warehouse facilities in Los Angeles after a long-running series of labor disputes and decline in business. California Cartage’s imports to the ports of LA and Long Beach largely ended in March, while shipments to its operations on the east coast climbed by 37.1% into Norfolk and 44.5% into Savannah. The next big challenge may come from underlying business conditions given shipments from China – subject to the vagaries of tariff negotiations – represented 68.0% of the total in 2018.
