Top Seaport Honour Goes to Long Beach


The Port of Long Beach has been named the best seaport in North America at the recent Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain Awards in Hong Kong, hosted by the shipping trade publication Asia Cargo News.

The award recognises the best ports as judged by importers, exporters, and logistics and supply chain professionals.

PTI previously reported how PSA also won a big accolade at the awards, as well as the Port of Hamburg.

In the past, the program was organised by another publication; CargoNews Asia. If viewed as a continuation of those awards, this is the Port of Long Beach’s seventeenth time in the last 20 years winning the Best North American Seaport honour.

In 2014, Long Beach won the award for being the world’s Best Green Seaport, based on its environmental record.

“We’re working harder than ever to provide the service to our customers that will keep them coming back to Long Beach,” said Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners President Doug Drummond. “It’s great to see the results of efforts, and I’d like to thank Asia Cargo News for this award.”

More than 15,000 industry professionals who read Asia Cargo News participated in the nomination and selection of winners.

The Port of Long Beach is one of the world’s premier seaports, a gateway for trans-Pacific trade and a trailblazer in goods movement and environmental stewardship.

With 140 shipping lines connecting Long Beach to 217 seaports, the Port handles US$180 billion in trade annually, supporting hundreds of thousands of Southern California jobs.
