California export trade stays on a roll in May

California export trade continued to sizzle in May, adding nearly $1 billion to year-ago totals and setting a pace well ahead of a record-setting 2013. In-state businesses shipped merchandise valued at $14.23 billion in May, up 7.4 percent from $13.25 billion in May 2013, according to an analysis of Thursday's (July 3) U.S. Commerce Department figures by Beacon Economics, a consulting firm with offices in the Bay Area and Los Angeles.
