Top executives from the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles held a kickoff meeting earlier this week to begin working together to focus on cargo conveyance strategies that will enhance velocity and efficiency throughout their gateway's supply chain.
In their first meeting under the formal discussion agreement recently approved by the Federal Maritime Commission, ranking staff of the two San Pedro Bay ports — the busiest seaport complex in the United States — agreed that the primary goal of the collaboration is to get cargo moving more efficiently.
The San Pedro Bay ports are on track to move cargo faster by making a chassis supply problem a thing of the past. The nation’s busiest harbor complex now has a “gray chassis fleet” – a new model for managing the equipment that drayage trucks use to haul containers – to ensure chassis are available when and where they are needed.
Cargo terminals in February at the Port of Long Beach moved 20.1 percent fewer containers than the same month last year due to congestion issues faced by all West Coast seaports.
