Forty percent of everything that the United States imports -- car parts, bananas, lumber, jet engines, grain, shoes, phones, sofas, and so much of what fills the aisles of Nordstroms and Walmart and Home Depot -- comes through the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Together, these harbors form the busiest port complex in the United States, and the ninth busiest in the world. Cargoland follows the workers at the harbor, the goods they touch, and the changes that are forcing a new way of life on America’s most trafficked waterfront.

Customer Reviews


From someone in the high plains that is never around this industry, never sees the scenes, hears the tales, meets the people, this show is excellent. Paints a great picture for the listener. I really enjoyed the episode on automation, because I feel that it is representative of a revolution happening everywhere. Hope to hear more!

Excellent outsiders perspective

I can't tell who ok'd this piece of journalism with no predefined audience but I'm glad they did. Interviews are excellent, subjects unfamiliar and fascinating. Thanks!

Great Storytelling

Enjoyed the stories, the richness of each person’s experience. How did the journalist manage to find so many deeply self-reflective people? I’m thinking she brings that out in folks.. Excited for more.
