Established in 1907, the Port of Los Angeles is a major economic engine for Southern California. As the leading seaport in North America in terms of shipping container volume and cargo value, the Port supports more than 830,000 regional jobs and $35 billion in annual wages and tax revenues.
The Port of LA complex covers more than 7,500 acres, has 27 cargo terminals, more than 50 berths and 70 gantry cranes, and handles $190 billion worth of cargo annually. The Port is also the home to the USS Iowa, a major cruise ship terminal, 16 marinas with nearly 3,800 boat slips, the Ports O’ Call Village, several museums, a Marymount College campus, and Crafted (an indoor craft marketplace).
The Port is actively pursuing the planned redevelopment of the 30-acre San Pedro Waterfront area, as well as major capital improvement programs. The Port has also become a leader in environmental sustainability and air pollution control. Learn more about the future plans for the Port of Los Angeles.
