Imports at the Port of Long Beach were up 5% in April as retailers readied inventory for the summer sales season, port officials said. April's mark of roughly 182,000 inbound cargo containers was the highest for any month so far this year, and was about 5% over the previous high in February. Port trade analyst Matt Plezia said that despite the high number, port officials had been expecting greater inbound volume as importers rushed to bring in goods before a May 1 shipping rate hike.

International trade is surging again at the major local ports, suggesting that economic strength is building despite stubbornly high unemployment.
