FuturePorts is the organization bringing together business, community and government leaders to work toward an integrated approach to resolving port, industry and community concerns.

As the two largest ports in the nation, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach generate $200 billion annually in throughput, and handle 43% of all waterborne U.S. trade and 60% of all imports from Asia.  Hundreds of thousands of jobs have already been created in Southern California by ever-increasing port activity. With trade volume projected to triple over the next 20 years, Southern California has an unprecedented opportunity to solidify its position as the nation's pre-eminent trade center. However, a number of challenges threaten the ports' and industries' ability to sustain their role as critical economic engines in California and the nation.  

  • Congestion in the region continues to increase, and the construction of necessary improvements to alleviate bottlenecks is hindered by funding shortfalls and delays in the decision-making process.
  • Air quality and other environmental challenges are jeopardizing the timely completion of much-needed infrastructure improvements.  
  • Area residents are increasingly concerned about the impact of port activity on their communities, and struggle to understand the beneficial and necessary role our ports play in the local econom

The time is now for a dynamic and visionary organization to secure a vibrant economic and environmental future for the ports, their businesses and their surrounding communities. Currently, there is no single advocacy organization focused on solving goods movement problems using a multi-stakeholder and regional perspective on the ports and shipping supply chain.  FuturePorts will identify growth and environmental challenges and advocate strongly for solutions through its Strategic Action Plan.
