Biden meets Long Beach officials to discuss about investments on infrastructure and trade, aiming to build a resilient supply chain.
Joe Biden, the president of the United States, met with the Port of Long Beach (POLB) executive director, Mario Cordero, and Long Beach Harbor commission president, Steven Neal to discuss investments on infrastructure and trade, aiming to build a resilient supply chain.
Biden, Cordero, and Neal looked at how higher logistics and transportation prices are contributing to inflation, ongoing efforts to quickly move cargo containers from docks to consumer doorsteps, and finance critical infrastructure in the port of Long Beach.
"President Biden's visit underscores his administration's ongoing commitment to ensuring the Port of Long Beach can thrive as an economic engine for Southern California and the nation," said Cordero.
The government provided US$52.3 million in late 2021 at POLB to develop the Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility, which will make it possible to transport more freight by train, increase efficiency and reduce environmental impact.
Meanwhile, the Californian port is working with leaders in the freight industry to develop cargo congestion solutions, including switching to 24-hour terminal operation, strengthening freight policies for seaports across the country and digitalisation.
