The history of international trade is one of building connections-between cultures and civilizations, between business and people, between ideas and innovation.

From the time when ships first set sail for the purpose of commerce, seaports have provided those connections It’s what we do here at the Port of Long Beach every day, just as we have since 1911.  At our Centennial the Port stands proudly as one of the world’s great hubs for international trade.
