This research brief is given by Genevieve Giuliano and Nathan Hustong from the MetroFreight Center of Excellence, METRANS Transportation Center, University of Southern California.

The Los Angeles region has a complex network of warehouses and distribution centers for handling both domestic and foreign trade. Los Angeles’ freight system serves the local market and distributes goods around the country that arrive in Los Angeles via air or maritime ports. The warehousing needs of individual shippers vary significantly based upon their supply chain, customer base and product type.

For this reason, the question of the optimal warehouse location has no easy answer. This study focuses on shippers whose primary decision factor is accessibility to the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

The details of this research brief and others can be found on the MetroFreight Project's' page.
