Before a product can be displayed on a supermarket shelf or dispatched from a post office, it has to be transported from its point of origin to its destination. Transportation and warehousing of goods is usually managed by one or more logistics companies, such as UPS Supply Chain Solutions, DHL-owned Exel, or C.H. Robinson Worldwide. With a net revenue of just over 3.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, UPS Supply Chain Solutions was the leading logistics company in the United States.
Depending on the weight, volume and destination of goods, the cargo can be moved by land, air or water. Therefore, freight gateways like ports, airports and goods stations are important hubs for the trade of goods. The Port of New York is currently the busiest freight gateway in the United States, followed by the Port Los Angeles in California, the Laredo customs district and JFK International Airport in New York.
