More countries are now importing American auto-related exports
Auto goods shipped around the world often pass through U.S. ports in states not generally considered “auto” states by the public. In fact, every region of the U.S. has port facilities busily loading and unloading cars and parts. For example, Baltimore remains the busiest US port for finished vehicle handling and the second busiest in North America overall. And, in an “auto state” with assembly plants, the port of Charleston is expected to gain business this year from expanded production and the opening of a new plant in South Carolina.
