Port of Long Beach Chief Executive Jon Slangerup on Thursday unveiled ambitious plans for congestion-beating smart systems for cargo movement and an all-out push to achieve energy resilience for port operations with wind turbines, solar cells and other clean technologies, in his first-ever “State of the Port” address.
An archived webcast is available at www.polb.com/stateoftheport.
At the Port of Long Beach, the world’s greenest terminal is under construction, pioneering anti-pollution measures have led to dramatic clean air gains, and thriving sea life coexists with one of the busiest container ports in the world. These are just a few of the many environmental successes the Port has achieved under its historic Green Port Policy, adopted 10 years ago this month.
Cargo container trade climbed 1.3 percent in 2014, indicating continued economic growth for the U.S. and bringing the Port its third-busiest year ever behind the peak years of 2006 and 2007.
