I've been sourcing items for the last 10 years: Imported goods into Argentina and also travelled to China 5 times for sourcing and importing goods. Now, I'm ready to move to the US and start my own wholesale/distribution business by importing goods from China.

I know that the biggest importers are based in California, but there are other good cities that I checked which seem more lucrative professionally, when compared to cities inside California, like Seattle or Portland (which has no sales tax and offers other exemptions too).

So, I would like to know about the best place to establish a warehouse at and distribute goods across USA. The choices are:

Los Angeles
Others (please specify).
