2017 Infrastructure Report Card - GPA: D+ - American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) publishes The Infrastructure Report Card, which grades the current state of national infrastructure categories on a scale of A through F. Since 1998, America’s infrastructure has earned persistent D averages, and the failure to close the investment gap with needed maintenance and improvements has continued.

North American seaports 2015 overview and outlook - JLL
Already leading in TEUs, Gulf and eastern seaports are anticipated to capture even more West Coast discretionary cargo when a new Panama Canal opens next year. Demand for industrial space will not transfer equally—there are too many complexities and variables in the movement of goods to portend a macro shift in industrial occupancy.

The top 10 metropolitan port complexes in the U.S. - Brookings Institution
The United States exported and imported $4.0 trillion worth of international goods in 2014, making it the world’s second-largest trader, after China. The responsibility for moving all those products falls to the country’s 400-plus seaports, airports, and border-crossing facilities, though a smaller group does most of the country’s heavy lifting. In fact, ports in just 10 metropolitan areas move 60 percent of all international goods by value.

The Triple-E’s can carry more than 18,000 containers, piled 20 high, with 10 above deck and 10 below. But they can sail only between Europe and Asia, as their nearly 194-foot wide hull is too large to fit into American ports or to slip through the Panama Canal.
