Port of Long Beach crowned best West Coast seaport

Posted on October 11, 2023

The Port of Long Beach has received the Best West Coast Seaport in North America’s award for the fifth year in a row by Asia Cargo News.

The honour was announced during the Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards held on 28 September in Singapore.

Asia Cargo News hosts and organises the awards ceremony yearly to recognise the top seaports, shipping lines, and other logistics industry leaders.

More than 15,000 readers of Asia Cargo News made the nominations for each category, then a winner was determined from a list of eight finalists in each category.

“It’s wonderful to be honoured again by the very customers we serve,” said Port of Long Beach CEO Mario Cordero.

“Thank you to the waterfront workforce and industry partners who continue to make the Port of Long Beach the most sustainable, efficient gateway for trans-Pacific trade.”

“We are investing $2.2 billion during the next 10 years to upgrade our rail infrastructure, modernise terminals, deepen channels and enhance our operations to stay ahead of our competition,” said Long Beach Harbor Commission President Bobby Olvera Jr.

“We are grateful for the recognition by Asia Cargo News and the support of its readers.”

In September 2023, the Port of Long Beach’s air pollution emissions was significantly lower in 2022, fulfilling all of the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan targets a year ahead of schedule.

More recently, the Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Shanghai issued an outline of a Green Shipping Corridor Implementation Plan to accelerate emissions reductions across the Pacific Ocean.
