The Port of Long Beach has completed the Long Beach Container Terminal at Middle Harbor, a state-of-the-art green terminal that has been about a decade in the making, the port announced earlier this month.
“As the world’s first all-electric, zero-emission mega terminal, LBCT sets the industry standard for moving cargo sustainably while keeping the Port competitive and supporting vital jobs,” said port Executive Director Mario Cordero. “It is truly a technological marvel that will allow us to increase our throughput, improve air quality and maintain our status as a leading gateway for trans-Pacific trade.”
Outfitted with equipment that is almost all electric or zero-emissions, building the $1.493 billion terminal began in 2011 and was completed in multiple phases.
“The final phase of LBCT at Middle Harbor adds container capacity to the Port of Long Beach and ensures the speedy, secure and sustainable delivery of millions of cargo containers for decades to come,” Long Beach Container Terminal CEO Anthony Otto said.
