LONG BEACH, May 15 (GCTL) - The Port of Long Beach has launched a pioneering project to build a highly advanced terminal at a cost of US$1.2 billion that will feature the most modern and clean technologies available to move cargo.
The Middle Harbor modernization project is combining two older facilities, LBCT’s existing terminal and a nearby, vacated facility, into one container terminal that will generate 14,000 new, permanent regional jobs and reduce air pollution by half even as trade could more than double.
As the project progresses, Long Beach Container Terminal – the local subsidiary of OOCL – will expand from its current 90-acre facility to the new, 304-acre terminal with the ability to berth the largest, most modern ships. It will be one of the world’s most technologically advanced and greenest terminals.
