Long Beach and Panama sign new MoU

The Port of Long Beach and the Panama Canal Authority have renewed a Memorandum of Understanding initially signed in 2010 for a period of five years

The MoU covers marketing and the exchange of technical expertise in engineering, training and environmental programmes. Speaking last week at the TOC Container Supply Chin Americas conference in Panama, the Port of Long Beach's Managing Director, Trade Development and Port Operations, Sean Strawbridge said that the port views the enlarged canal locks as an important part of the industry rather than a competitive threat.

The Port of Los Angeles has endorsed the “Beat the Canal” initiative launched by groups in the LA shipping and business community, but Strawbridge said Long Beach is taking a more cooperative approach.

“The canal goes both ways,” said Strawbridge, and Long Beach is keen to work with the ACP to try and encourage new cargo flows that will benefit the port. On the engineering side, Strawbridge said, both sides can gain a lot from sharing experiences and best practices on terminal development, bridge building and harbour engineering.

Long Beach, he added, has a lot of expertise in the environmental protection, sustainability, permitting and regulatory management areas. “If you can develop successfully in California you can develop anywhere in the rest of the world,” he said.
