Southern California’s key international trade industry will see more declines in activity during 2009 after a dismal performance in 2008, according to the International Trade Trends & Impacts report prepared annually by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC).

“The number of containers moved at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in 2009 will drop by 13.5 percent, while the total value of two-way trade through the Los Angeles District should fall by 15.8 percent to $300 billion,” said Nancy Sidhu. Ph.D., the LAEDC’s chief economist.

As a result, international trade related employment will fall by 9.3 percent, or 46,000 jobs.

“2008 was a year full of unhappy surprises for the international trade industry,” continued Sidhu. “The industry saw employment fall by 1.1 percent, or 5,600 jobs, while industrial vacancy rates spiked up to 9.9 percent at year-end 2008 in the Riverside-San Bernardino area.”

The latter had been a hotbed of new construction, much of it on speculation that international trade in the region would continue to boom. Both the ocean shipping industry and railroads have been hammered by the downturn with a lot of equipment pulled out of service.
Some of the key findings of the LAEDC report include:

- The Los Angeles Customs District retained its number one ranking in the U.S. in trade value in 2008 with an increase of 2.5 percent to $356.1 billion. However, the number two district New York saw a more robust gain of 9.3 percent to $353.6 billion.
- The number of containers handled at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in 2008 totaled 14.3 million TEUs, a decline of 8.5 percent. New York, the nation’s second largest port, saw a modest drop of 0.6 percent to 5.3 million TEUs.

- Despite the decline in container traffic in 2008, the Los Angeles/Long Beach port complex was able to maintain its number five ranking among the world’s top ports.

- China easily retained its position as the top trading partner for the Los Angeles Customs District in 2008. Total two-way trade value came to $186.6 billion. Japan was a distant number two with a 2008 value of $59.3 billion.

- The top export commodity out of the Los Angeles Customs District in 2008 was computers, peripherals, machinery, appliances and parts with a value of $17.3 billion.

- The top import commodity to the Los Angeles Customs District in 2008 was electrical equipment, TVs and electronic parts with a value of $58.2 billion.
