The Second largest among the settlements of the U.S. metropolis of Los Angeles, located on the shores of the Pacific grew from a small settlement, which was approved in 1781 by the Governor of a young state of California. Its name in Spanish was: “the Village of the virgin Mary, Queen of angels, on the river Porciuncula”. But since it was too long to even remember, over time the city grew, and the name was dropped until I fit into two of the familiar words.

Today, Los Angeles is known around the world primarily as the capital of the entertainment industry. Here is the famous Hollywood and the most famous record companies, and the most famous people in America believe it is prestigious to have a house in the area of Beverly hills. “the City where dreams come true” for the past decades attracted people from all over the world as one of the largest centers of tourism and international business: here Cargo from USA shipped worldwide.

The Location of the town, beneficial to all business sectors, contributes to its development and prosperity. Los Angeles is one of the largest port cities in America, where the delivery of international cargo traveling by sea. Two ports-Los Angeles and long beach constitute one of the largest in the world in terms of cargo turnover of the port centre. The area of the port of Los Angeles is 3.5 thousand kilometers. Daily 27 cargo terminals serve vessels carrying all types of cargoes.

Shipping containers from this port are delivered in the direction of Hamburg and Antwerp a maximum of two shipping lines. All water service is 40-45 days and is the most profitable option from the standpoint of cost. A long way due to the geographic location of the port: vessels with cargoes going to Europe, we have to circumnavigate the continent of North America, with its South side, to narrow the Panamanian isthmus from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Across the Atlantic the court direct the course fall into European ports, where rail or road transport container cargo is delivered throughout the Eurasian continent.

There are two options for the delivery of goods from Los Angeles. Both require freight trains to the ports of the East coast – Houston, or new York. From these ports the containers are sent by sea to Europe. With the delivery through Houston is 30-35 days, and in new York from 20 to 25. With the reduction of the delivery time correspondingly increases the cost of transportation. Therefore, before choosing the best route option, you need to estimate the expected ratio of cost of goods and speed of delivery.
