Long Beach Acclaim

Shipping trade publication Asia Cargo News recently announced that the Port of Long Beach had been named the “Best West Coast Seaport” in North America at the 33rd annual Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards in Hong Kong.

The port has garnered “Best Green Seaport” last year from Asia Cargo News, which annually celebrates industry leaders for “service quality, innovation, customer-relationship management and reliability.” Supply chain professionals and others judge the nominees.

“We’ve invested $4 billion in modernization projects over the last 10 years, in a program designed to provide our supply chain partners with the services and facilities they need to move their goods rapidly and efficiently,” said Long Beach Harbor Commission President Tracy Egoscue. “It’s great to see customers satisfied, and we would like to thank Asia Cargo News for the award.”
