Port of Long Beach Tour Forum participants will have an opportunity to tour one of America's premier seaports and a trailblazer in goods movement and environmental stewardship. The Port forms the perfect backdrop for a conference focused on coordinating and integrating transportation. Trade valued annually at more than $100 million moves through the Port of Long Beach, making it the second-busiest seaport in the United States. Everything from clothing and shoes to toys, furniture and consumer electronics arrives at the Port before making its way to store shelves throughout the country. Specialized terminals also move petroleum, automobiles, cement, lumber, steel and other products. A major economic force, the Port supports more than 30,000 jobs in Long Beach and generates about $16 billion in annual trade-related wages statewide.
