The Port of Long Beach on Wednesday said it signed an agreement with a major South Korean shipping line to operate a 375-acre cargo terminal on the site of the former Long Beach Naval Station. That site was the focus of a bitter fight two years ago when the port tried to lease the historic base to a firm owned by the Chinese government. If completed, the deal with the Hanjin Shipping Co.

Import growth was relatively flat last month at the Port of Long Beach, the nation's second-busiest commercial harbor, compared with unusually strong inbound cargo volume the previous November, port officials said Tuesday. November typically marks the beginning of a slowdown in import cargo following the traditional holiday merchandise shipping crunch.

Forget reindeer. Santa's gift-laden sleigh is more likely to be found in the belly of a cargo ship heading for the Port of Los Angeles. The port said that during October imported cargo--mostly Asian-made consumer goods slated as holiday shopping fare--set a new single-month record. The port took in nearly 251,000 import containers, beating last October's total by 26%.

Seeking to stem the loss of jobs and keep business in California, the Assembly approved a bill Monday to reinstate a longstanding tax break for commercial shipowners who refuel in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Imposition of the tax last year caused job losses and declining fuel sales at both ports, according to the bill's sponsor, Assemblyman Dave Elder (D-Long Beach). A 53-8 lower house vote sent the measure to an uncertain Senate fate.
