Billions to be invested by US ports to improve efficiency

2015 was a year full of congestion for U.S. West Coast ports, as they struggled to handle backed up vessels, long truck queues and marine terminals full of containers. The Journal of Commerce reports on a July Federal Maritime Commission study that accounts the issues facing all major U.S. entryways, including marine terminal and roadway congestion, due in part to the lack of an effective strategy to handle the large ships deployed by carrier alliances.

The problem is compounded by poor on-time performance of shipping lines, which creates vessel clustering on the water, and truck clustering on land. Also, countless terminals were intended to handle 5,000-TEU vessels instead of the 10,000 to 14,000-TEU ships normally used today. Similarly, a problematic workforce and port congestion are taking a toll at main entryways, particularly on the West Coast.

In 2014, Los Angeles-Long Beach and New York-New Jersey handled 47.7% of loaded containers traveling through U.S. ports.

In response to the congestion problems, ports and terminal operators are investing billions of dollars in development of marine terminals and inter-modal rail and roadway systems. With branches in both Los Angeles and New York, and throughout the United States, CFR Classic is uniquely equipped to be a major power player in the U.S. shipping industry. A wide network of experienced truck drivers, along with industry-leading steel loading systems and real-time tracking, allow us to move a wide array of cargo quickly and efficiently domestically and internationally.

Joey has spent his entire teen and adult life in cars. Joey's father owned a Jeep store, and Joey had his own used car lot that he ran himself from age 22 until I was 30. At 30 years old, Joey got "out of" the car business and joined CFR Rinkens. Joey started when there were only 9 people at CFR, but the company grew to over 150 employees during his time there. When Joey started, CFR Rinkens was shipping about 40 vehicles per week from Los Angeles. Joey established locations in Houston, Miami, and New York and within the first year, CFR went to shipping 150 cars per week. Joey started as a customer service rep and later moved up to sales manager, operations manager, and marketing manager. Joey then moved to Europe for two years and spent the entire time traveling through Europe meeting with clients. In 2022, Joey and his partners purchased CFR Classic from CFR Rinkens and he returned to California to watch over the operation more closely.
