Truck traffic at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Calif., is expected to double in the next 20 years.
That's according to a study done by the ports and reported in the Daily Breeze newspaper. The report indicated the number of container trucks is expected to grow from about 35,000 a day to nearly 83,000 a day by 2020.
A coalition of groups is already working on ways to address congestion problems at the port. The West Coast Waterfront Coalition's first proposal will look at extending gate hours.
While the number of spot market loads on the DAT network of load boards fell last week along with truck posts, rates changed little.
