California Container Port Business Best in Three Years; Renews Pressure for Mexico to Build Punta Colonet Mega-Port as Reliever

Container traffic at the Port of Los Angeles climbed 25% in August, compared to the year-ago period, reaching its highest level since August 2006. That's proof that the economic recovery has continued in advance of the key Fall shipping season. Loaded inbound containers totaled 399,150, up 23.3%. Overall, the total 763,837 containers through the port last month was the highest monthly total since 790,726 in August 2006. Container traffic through the Port of Los Angeles is up 17.9% so far in 2010, compared to 2009.

Clearly, pressure is building for the Mexican government to keep its promise to begin the bidding process this year for the long-delayed mega-port at Punta Colonet.

"I Would Build an International Airport & Seaport" in Baja California, Says Ernesto Ruffo Appel

American-born Mexican politician and investor Ernesto Ruffo Appel is calling for immediate construction of major infrastructure projects in Baja California, including an international airport in Ensenada, and the mega-port at Punta Colonet. He says that within 15 years there will be a major shift of Mexico's economy from the center of the nation to its Western coast. In remarks yesterday in Tjuana, he said that California is showing signs of strain from the demands on its limited air- and seaport facilities. "The natural place to expand transportation facilities is the wide open expanse surrounding Ensenada," just south of the U.S. border. The new highways, power plants and other structures and systems that will be built to serve the two projects will take Baja California's economy to much higher levels, he said, and the airport and mega-port will add to each project's volume and success.
