The Port of Long Beach and the Utah Inland Port Authority are partnering to develop cleaner and more cost-effective strategies to move goods quickly, safely and efficiently between their ports.
The four-year, nonbinding pact will focus on improving import and export cargo flows between the nation’s second-busiest seaport and Utah’s logistics network, according to a joint news release.
Under the agreement, the parties will collaborate on business opportunities and share information as they undertake major projects expected to improve the speed and efficiency of cargo shipments between Southern California and Utah.
The Port of Long Beach plans to invest $1 billion in rail improvements over the next 10 years to ease the flow of cargo moving through its complex. In turn, the Utah Inland Port Authority aims to strengthen its ability to transfer imports and exports to more efficient modes of transportation for further supply chain distribution.
