LB Port again recognized as ‘best seaport’ through trade newspaper’s readers poll

The Port of Long Beach has once again been named as the best seaport in North America by Cargonews Asia, a newspaper published directly for those who manage the logistics and cargo supply chains in the Asia Pacific region. The recognition was announced last week at the 2010 Asian Freight and Supply Chain Awards in Hong Kong.
It is the sixth consecutive year and the 14th time in the last 15 years that the Port of Long Beach has been recognized as the best on the continent, despite increased competition for Asian cargo.
“We are honored to have our work recognized by the maritime industry,” said Richard D. Steinke, Port of Long Beach executive director. “We strive to be at the forefront of technology and customer service, and we will continue to aim high as trade recovers from the recession.”
An Asian Freight and Supply Chain Award is a highly regarded distinction given by thousands of importers, exporters, logistics and supply-chain professionals who use fright transportation services. The program, in its 24th year, is known informally as the “Shipper’s Choice” awards and is based on a readers poll. The awards also recognize the best shipping lines, container terminals, air cargo terminals, airports and rail haulers.
