Asian imports turn up the heat for vans on the West Coast
OCTOBER 30, 2018
Demand for vans continues to heat up on the West Coast, boosting load-to-truck ratios in California, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah. This trend repeats every year, as consumer goods from Asia arrive at the ports and begin the eastward journey to regional distribution centers throughout the country. Ships arrived late, and containers were unloaded and drayed to warehouses late, so that cargo is finally heading east and north.
