New Long Beach Strategy Approved

By Karen Robes Meeks

An updated Strategic Plan for the Port of Long Beach has recently been approved by the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners.

The plan outlines the port’s key goals and objectives, which include bolstering its competitive stance through “secure and efficient movement of cargo while providing outstanding customer service,” staying fiscally strong and secure, building and maintaining its infrastructure, lowering the port’s environmental impacts through sustainable practices, expanding community access to port opportunities and economic benefits and keeping and drawing a diverse and high-performing workforce.

“In a highly competitive industry like ours, we must think strategically. The Strategic Plan, as created with the leadership of our Board of Harbor Commissioners, defines how we will maintain our longstanding commitment to operational excellence well into the next decade,” said Port of Long Beach Executive Director Mario Cordero.
