Port of
Long Beach

The Port of Long Beach is one of America’s premier seaports and a trailblazer in goods movement and environmental stewardship. The second-busiest container seaport in the U.S. moving over $180 billion in trade annually, the Port also offers specialized terminals that move petroleum, automobiles, cement, lumber, steel and other products.

A major economic force generating roughly $16 billion in annual trade-related wages statewide, the Port supports over 30,000 jobs in Long Beach, 316,000 jobs throughout Southern California and 1.4 million jobs throughout the nation.

With a Green Port Policy minimizing or eliminating negative impacts, the Port is a catalyst for innovative environmental programs such as the Green Flag vessel speed reduction air quality program, Green Leases with environmental covenants, and the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan. The Port is building the Green Port of the Future by investing $4 billion to achieve long-term, environmentally sustainable growth, and maintain its competitive edge as the fastest route between Asia and anywhere in North America.

With these bold initiatives, the Port is dedicated to improving air quality more quickly and aggressively than has ever been attempted by any seaport in the world while maintaining the most advanced technologies and facilities.

For these reasons and more, the Port is recognized internationally as one of the world’s best seaports, and locally as a partner dedicated to helping the community thrive.
