Harbor leaders for the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach signed a memorandum of understanding that would allow the twin ports to work together on issues related to cargo movement efficiency, connectivity, workforce development, cybersecurity and metrics.

“Our two ports are the fastest way to move goods between Asia and US markets and manufacturers,” said Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero. “The kind of cooperation that will flow from this agreement ensures we will continue to be the most efficient gateway for shippers.”

The twin ports will collaborate with those in the supply chain to address operational issues that could help them become more efficient and realize more savings while boosting business flow, security and sustainability.

“America’s two largest and most competitive ports have a long and successful history of collaborating on key issues,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka. “This agreement significantly expands these efforts and underscores our shared commitment to lead and succeed.”
