Los Angeles, California, USA - August 23, 2013: Freight containers, a big rig truck and railyard tracks typify activity at a large freight shipping work site. Container boxes are stacked in the background at the Port of Los Angeles awaiting their turn to be transported. Large stackers fit them to big rig truck beds for over-the-road transport as shown here, or to rail cars for train transport. Also, port cranes are used to transfer the container boxes to ship decks for overseas transport. The activity is handled by freight forwarding and tracking companies such as Yang Ming, Beacon, Florens, TAL, Evergreen and Dong Fang. These distribution companies coordinate with ocean going shippers and land-based trucking companies to move and track goods such as food and produce, building materials, machinery, trash, mail, agricultural supplies, motor vehicles and much more.
