The Port of Los Angeles has only one of the four automated cargo terminals in the U.S.,  although a fifth is scheduled for the port at Long Beach.    European ports are way ahead of us because American long-shore labor unions have  resisted automation  because it means up to 50% fewer humans will be needed to move cargo.   But like it or not,  robots will be necessary to handle the super cargo ships of the modern era.
