China will maintain its role as the dominant source of supply for global manufacturers, according to a new study by The Tioga Group Inc. The Containerized Intermodal Goods Movement Assessment is based on interviews with more than 60 firms. It finds that imports from India and Southeast Asia are growing, but on a relatively small base. Cargo from Asia to the U.S. will continue to shift to East Coast ports, with New York/New Jersey and Virginia acting as primary gateways, although the West Coast will grow as well. And Southern California transloading operations will keep on playing a major role in the movement of imports to U.S. East and Midwest destinations, according to The Tioga Group.
