Fourth consecutive win, 12th in 13 years
The Port of Long Beach once again has been named the best seaport in North America by Cargonews Asia at the 2008 Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards held recently in Singapore.
It’s the fourth consecutive year and the 12th time in the past 13 years that the Port of Long Beach has been recognized as the best on the continent, despite strong competition from notables such as the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of New York/New Jersey.
“It’s a great honor for the Port and I think it speaks volumes to all the customer focus the staff has. We are proud to be known for our customer-friendliness,” said Port of Long Beach Deputy Executive Director Christopher Lytle.
Other best seaports around the world named in the 2008 awards include the Port of Singapore in Asia, the Port of Rotterdam in Europe and the Port of Jebel Ali, Dubai, in the Middle East.
The Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards, in its 22nd year, is a highly regarded publication serving thousands of logistics and supply chain professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. The awards also recognize the best shipping lines, container terminals, air cargo terminals, airports and rail haulers.
