  • The Port of Long Beach increased its productivity 16 percent in 2017 compared with 2016, according to the JOC Port Productivity Database. The database measures productivity by the number of container moves completed each hour a vessel spends in port. By comparison, year-to-year global port productivity declined 3 percent for the same period. The overall decline is attributed to the challenges of handling larger ships carrying more containers in a single call. The trend was reported May 4 in the Journal of Commerce.
  • Progress continues on the Alameda Corridor-East (ACE) project to improve the flow of traffic, eliminate at-grade railroad crossings, increase safety and reduce emissions along the 35-mile trade and commuter corridor connecting the Alameda Corridor and the San Pedro Bay ports to the Inland Empire and the nation. On May 16, the California Transportation Commission awarded ACE a $78 million grant to help pay for two final grade separation projects: an underpass in Montebello and an overpass in the City of Industry and unincorporated Los Angeles County. Also, new on-ramps and off-ramps opened May 1 on the 60 Freeway in Diamond Bar.
  • At its May 4 meeting, the governing board of the South Coast Air Quality Management District approved staff recommendations to develop rules aimed at reducing air pollution from rail yards and warehouses. For ports and airports, the board approved staff recommendations to continue pursuing voluntary emissions reduction strategies. The actions are part of AQMD efforts to address facility-based mobile sources of air pollution. The board delayed a decision on possible voluntary and/or regulatory strategies for reducing emissions associated with new development and redevelopment projects.
  • Berth 55 Fish Market & Seafood Deli and Queens Wharf Bar and Banquet facility recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. Located in the heart of the harbor district, the popular fresh seafood restaurant is operated by the Maehara family, who opened the business at 555 Pico Ave. in April 1988.
