TraPac Container Terminal Background

The Container Terminal at Berths 136-147 is operated by TraPac under a lease agreement between TraPac Inc. and the Los Angeles Harbor Department.

On December 6, 2007, the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners certified an Environmental Impact Report and approved the Berths 136-147 Container Terminal Project for expansion from 176 to 243 acres, modernization of the facility, and construction of an on-dock railyard. The EIR resulted in establishing 52 environmental mitigation measurements.

On August 13, 2009, the Board approved TraPac Permit No. 881 for a 30-year term for the redevelopment project and incorporated all of the tenant mitigation measures adopted in the Final EIR Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Plan.

Through an audit conducted by the Harbor Department in the fall of 2015, it was discovered that 49 of the 52 TraPac mitigation measures from the 2007 Environmental Impact Statement/Report were successfully implemented. The Harbor Department is working to address the three measures that were not implemented and any resulting impacts on the environment.
