Despite the rejection of a request for $3 billion dollars to improve the state's flow of goods, companies like still manage to successfully provide efficient service to customers

Hopefuls watched as the state Transportation Commission on Tuesday rejected demands of 36 legislators from Southern California to increase their area's share of transportation funds targeted at improving the flow of goods through ports and along rail lines and highways. The ideas were not completely rejected, and companies like will still benefit from the approved proposals.

The commission voted to adopt a plan that more evenly spreads the $3 billion throughout the state. Southern California will receive a majority of this disbursement, since 85% of all shipping cargo containers handled in California come through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

With the guidelines that the panel built, it will provide up to $1.7 billion, or nearly 60% of the expected funds, to Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties. San Francisco and other major cities in Northern California will receive the next lump sum, while San Diego and other areas will receive even less.

Freight companies, like, will be affected by this new plan, but will still be able to find business. "In a world that relies on companies like ours, it is hard to stop us with more money; however much it is," says a company member. They will continue to provide the same quality service to the Southern California region.
