Handling cargo operations for the China Shipping, Yang Ming, K-Line, Cosco, Hanjin, Sinotrans and Zim shipping lines, the terminal now comprises has 2,125 feet of berth equipped with eight super post-Panamax cranes. China Shipping also has a joint venture with a neighbouring container terminal that is operated by Yang Ming Shipping Line.
“We take great pride in the growth and success we’ve experienced at the Port of Los Angeles,” said China Shipping chairman Li Shaode. “The completion of this critical phase allows for the berthing of two ships simultaneously and positively positions China Shipping and the Port for considerable growth opportunities.”
As part of the latest improvements, an access bridge was also constructed between China Shipping and Yang Ming for efficient truck movement of cargo between the two terminals. Over the next three years, 375 feet of additional berth space will be added, along with more backland space that will eventually double the size of the terminal to 142 acres. China Shipping also plans to install two additional Super post-Panamax cranes bringing the total crane count to 10. When fully completed, terminal capacity will have increased to 1.5m teu capacity.
