Long Beach Container Terminal (LBCT) to see the Pier E redevelopment project combining two aging shipping terminals into the greenest, most technologically advanced container terminal in the world. Pier E facility opened in April of 2016 so we will witness the latest environmental and technological achievements and see first-hand unloading of cargo from a vessel calling into port.

See towering cranes, the most advanced and green terminal in the world, new infrastructure projects such as the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement, and possibly even catch a glimpse of local marine life.
