The Port of Long Beach in California is the second largest container port in the United States, generating $100 billion dollars in trade and over 300,000 jobs in Southern California. As one of America’s great trade posts with Asia, the Port of Long Beach is a pivotal force in the globalization of our economy.

 

WHY PORTS ARE IMPORTANT

One in eight employed people in Southern California work at the Port of Long Beach, but the influence extends far beyond there. From transportation and logistics to manufacturing and retail, huge trading ports like this are at the heart of American industry and commerce. Of course, there aren’t a lot of ports like this in the world, which creates many unique challenges in efficiency, operations, and logistics strategy.
