The latest installment of the award-winning "Pulse of the Port" video series takes you on a nighttime circuit of the Port of Long Beach with the Harbor Patrol and then offers a look at new less-polluting locomotives.
Trains are one of the greenest, most efficient ways to transport containerized cargo. We take a look at how Pacific Harbor Line's new reduced-emissions locomotives are promoting cleaner waterfront rail operations. Click here.
We then turn to the Port's summer internship program, in which area high school students get the opportunity to work alongside Port employees, learning about careers in various aspects of government and international trade. Click here.

The ports recently recognized six companies with Clean Air Action Plan Air Quality Awards for their exemplary efforts to reduce air pollution from their local maritime and goods-movement operations.
