LA Port Completes 5 Year Terminal Project
Los Angeles’ Everport Terminal Project Completed
The Port of Los Angeles, located in California, United States, has recently announced that it has completed its five-year long Everport Terminal Improvement Project. The project began in 2019, after receiving approval from local authorities in 2017.
The project includes new equipment to support electric trucks, berth deepening, and improved electrical infrastructure. The improvements are intended to improve efficiency, as well as allow larger ships to call at the port, requiring fewer ships to handle goods and, subsequently, reducing emissions.
Tony Gioiello, the deputy executive director of development of the Port of Los Angeles, noted, “The completion of this project marks years of planning and perseverance through a challenging pandemic and unprecedented cargo surge.”
