Long Beach Container Terminal Raises the Bar



Dr Noel Hacegaba, Deputy Executive Director and COO, Port of Long Beach


The recent realignment across all sectors of the supply chain that was set in motion by the wave of consolidation in the shipping line industry has for the most part stabilised.

Marine terminal operators, railroads, trucking companies and port authorities have adapted to handling larger vessels and fewer ship calls while working with fewer ocean carriers grouped into larger alliances.

If there is one lesson this experience has taught us it is that in order for one segment of the supply chain to achieve desired efficiencies through realignment, other segments have to adapt and compensate for those changes with their own version of realignment.

The interdependent nature of the supply chain makes this a requirement.
