The Port of Long Beach
The Port of Long Beach is the premier U.S. gateway for trans-Pacific trade and a trailblazer in innovative goods movement, safety, environmental stewardship and sustainability. As the second-busiest container seaport in the United States, the Port handles trade valued at more than $180 billion annually and supports 1.4 million trade-related jobs across the nation, including 300,000 in Southern California.
As the industry navigates the “Big Ship Era,” the Port of Long Beach is one of the few U.S. ports that can welcome today’s largest vessels.
The Port serves 175 shipping lines with connections to 217 seaports around the world. Goods moving through the Port reach every U.S. congressional district.
The Port encompasses 3,200 acres with 31 miles of waterfront, 10 piers, 80 berths and 66 post-Panamax gantry cranes. In 2017, the Port handled more than 7.5 million container units, achieving the busiest year in its 107-year history.
