It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Port of Los Angeles, the number one container port in North America and leader in terms of shipping container volume and cargo value. We are America’s Port® and recognized throughout the world as a global model for sustainability, security and social responsibility.
The Port is proud to be an important economic engine for the City of Los Angeles and the entire Southern California region, annually generating more than 830,000 regional jobs and $35 billion in wages and tax revenues. This success is the result of smart, balanced growth and a long-term strategic roadmap aimed at assuring the Port’s competitive, strong customer and stakeholder relationships, and solid financial strength.
Over the years, the Port has also built a strong reputation for environmental stewardship, carefully balancing growth with pollution-reducing measures that have made our Port one of the cleanest and greenest in the world. We take great pride in knowing that our leadership in this area has not only improved the quality of life in our community, but led to other ports around the world adopting similar practices and technologies.
If you visit the San Pedro Bay area, we also encourage you to check out the new LA Waterfront. Over the last several years, the Port has revitalized and successfully created an emerging and exciting destination for Southern California residents and visitors. The emerging LA Waterfront is also host to dozens of events each year, many of which are supported by the Port and free to the public.
This website is a great place to learn about our operations and initiatives. We regularly post the very latest news and information here, so visit us often and let us know if you have any suggestions or comments.
