The Port of Long Beach was named the best seaport in North America by Cargonews Asia at the 2012 Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards in Shanghai.
It is the 15th time in the past 17 years that the Port of Long Beach has been recognized as the best on the continent by importers, exporters, logistics and supply chain professionals.
"We are honored to be recognized by the maritime industry," said Port of Long Beach Executive Director J. Christopher Lytle. "We strive to offer the best facilities and customer service in the world, and we thank you for your recognition. We continue to aim high and invest in our future."
The annual Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards, known informally as the “Shippers' Choice” awards, is based on an annual poll of thousands of professionals in freight transportation services. It is a highly regarded distinction in the industry, and awards also are given in other categories, including best shipping lines, container terminals, air cargo terminals, airports and rail haulers.
