California governor urged to reverse ports’ receding market share

California Gov. Gavin Newsom got a letter Monday asking that the state take action to reverse the loss of market share at West Coast container ports.

The Pacific Merchant Shipping Association (PMSA), the first signatory, was joined by such organizations as the California Trucking Association, Harbor Trucking Association, California Railroad Association, Future Ports, Pacific Maritime Association, National Retail Federation, Agriculture Transportation Coalition, and Pacific Coast Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders.

In all, 52 trade associations, industry organizations and businesses signed the letter pleading with Newsom and the California Legislature to do something about what they identified as a 19.4% drop in West Coast ports’ market share.
