The Long Beach and Los Angeles ports released preliminary figures for May today. Long Beach showed a 25 percent increase in container traffic from a year ago. Imports rose nearly 27 percent. Exports grew 15 percent, the highest level in two years.

Port officials say May was the sixth month in a row that imports and exports have grown, something that hasn’t happened since 2006.
