By The Numbers: Jeopardizing the National Benefits of Trade Through America’s Busiest Port Complex



BST Associates on behalf of the Port of Los Angeles

BST Associates was retained by the Port of Los Angeles to analyze the degree to which waterborne trade moving through the San Pedro Bay ports is exposed to tariffs. The United States has recently imposed tariffs on selected commodities imported into the United States. In retaliation for these tariffs on imports, certain countries and regions have imposed or proposed tariffs on U.S. exports.

This analysis provides an estimate of the value (and volume) of trade that may be impacted by tariffs, and uses the value to estimate the economic impacts (jobs, income, and taxes) associated with the impacted trade. It is important to note the analysis does not estimate the percentage change in volume or price for impacted commodities.
