1 THE PORT OF LOS ANGELES JOBSPORTFOLIO

2 We re America s Port Global trade and goods movement are Southern California s strongest industries in terms of jobs and economic activity. The Port of Los Angeles powers these industries, handling almost a quarter of the cargo that enters the United States annually. Stable, well-paying jobs related to Port operations are a backbone of the Southern California economy. The Port directly and indirectly impacts: 918,800 (1 out of every 8) jobs in Southern California 1.1 million jobs statewide 3.3 million jobs nationwide Port Users 788,000 Port Industry 130,869 Cargo Handling 121,600 Cruise Industry 2,512 Commercial Fishing 1,404 Marina 1,581 Other 3,772 The broad category of Port Users includes jobs related to goods imported and exported through the Port. Industry jobs are directly tied to Port operations. Additionally, hundreds of thousands of indirect jobs are facilitated by the Port. They include jobs in assembling materials that flow through the Port, jobs at businesses that support shipping or goods movement, jobs related to cruise ship tourism, and jobs in retail sales of imported goods. Retail jobs exist in part because of the wages that are spent by hundreds of thousands of people who have jobs connected to the region s goods movement industry. IT ALL ADDS UP! The Port of Los Angeles Team As a City department, the Port of Los Angeles employs a diverse workforce. More than 900 semi-skilled, skilled, professional and managerial positions. Generous health, pension and other benefits. Incentive programs such as tuition and textbook reimbursement. For future employment opportunities, see the City s website at Future Workforce Opportunities The Port provides programs that expose and educate students and others to maritime career opportunities. Here are some examples: Some 50 students from the International Trade Education Programs (ITEP) academies at Wilmington s Banning High School participate in a paid Summer Intern Program to gain experience in various maritime businesses and agencies. A first-of-its-kind Craft Apprentice Program with the Los Angeles and Orange County Building Trade Councils trains plumbers, electricians, painters and carpenters for future careers at the Port. Under the Los Angeles Port Police Cadet Program, Los Angeles Harbor College-bound high school graduates are employed part-time while they complete their degree programs. The Port of Los Angeles provides tuition and textbook reimbursement for every cadet during their participation.

3 Green Growth & Clean Technology With the Port s focus on clean technology to reduce environmental impacts, new business opportunities are emerging. The Port is a major force behind innovations that foster jobs in the following areas: Solar power The rapidly growing solar industry creates 200 to 400 jobs in research and development, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance for every 10 megawatts of solar power created. Cutting-edge environmental technologies for the port and maritime industries Future job opportunities will be created in businesses that are developing pollution-control devices, energy-efficient equipment and alternativeenergy innovations for cargo terminals and shipping lines. Transforming the Port Trucking Industry The $2.2 billion Clean Truck Program (CTP) is an unprecedented initiative to transform L.A. s port trucking ( drayage ) system by lowering truck pollution by 80% and reducing public health costs by at least $500,000 annually. CTP job benefits include: Additional truck manufacturing jobs through port investment in alternative-power drayage trucks electric, liquid natural gas and compressed natural gas. Port incentives for carriers to purchase clean diesel trucks, which helps fund thousands of truck manufacturing jobs nationally. Workforce development initiatives to train future truck drivers and grow and strengthen jobs in the existing pool of 16,000 port truck drivers. Green Collar jobs The Port helped fund the development of a prototype all-electric, heavy duty truck (shown here). With the success of the prototype, the Port placed the first production order with Balqon Corporation to manufacture 25 tailpipe-emission-free, heavy duty electric trucks. Balqon agreed to move to the City of Los Angeles, where the company has roughly 50 employees and is filling worldwide orders. Alternative Maritime Power (AMP ) The Port is a pioneer in testing and implementing a number of new technologies, like AMP, which enables ships to plug into electric power at berth. AMPing the Port is a $100 million, multi-year initiative and another example of green-focused construction jobs currently underway at the Port. AMP eliminates a ton or more of emissions every 24 hours a ship is plugged in at berth. Tourism & Hospitality As the busiest passenger port on the US West Coast, Port of Los Angeles economic impacts extend far beyond goods movement. The Port of Los Angeles welcomes approximately 250 ship calls each year, which collectively generate more than $281 million in regional economic activity. The Port s passenger ship operations foster 1,300 harbor area jobs and more than 2,500 regional jobs. Cruise travelers and crew members spend nearly $25 million per year locally on hotel rooms, restaurant visits and shopping. Proposed waterfront redevelopment can help create more than 1,000 future retail, commercial and cruise industry jobs.

4 Port Development Brings Even More Jobs The Port of Los Angeles continually invests in projects related to cargo terminal development, transportation infrastructure improvements, and waterfront redevelopment. These projects provide thousands of construction jobs and full-time permanent jobs. Here is an overview of jobs connected to major projects approved or proposed in the Port s 10-year capital improvement program. 1 TraPac Terminal Berths Construction Jobs....4,315 Jobs During Operation....15, China Shipping Terminal Berths Construction Jobs....1,643 Jobs During Operation....4,065 3 Plains All American Marine Oil Terminal 9 10 Pier 408 Construction Jobs....3,900 Jobs During Operation San Pedro Waterfront Project (Proposed) Construction Jobs....6,091 Jobs During Operation....1, Wilmington Waterfront Master Plan Construction Jobs....2,609 Jobs During Operation Evergreen Container Terminal Improvements Berths Construction Jobs....1,452 8 Jobs During Operation....12,042 7 Yusen Container Terminal Improvements Berths Construction Jobs....1,297 Jobs During Operation....9, APL Container Terminal Improvements Berths Construction Jobs Jobs During Operation....18,267 Yang Ming Container Terminal Improvements Berths Construction Jobs....1,558 Jobs During Operation....10, Pasha Marine Terminal Improvements Berths Construction Jobs Jobs During Operation....1,237

6 Ports Deliver Prosperity For centuries, seaports have served as a vital economic lifeline by bringing goods and services to people around the world. Today, approximately 99% of all goods come into the US by ships, and seaports continue to be a critical link for access to the global marketplace. Seaports throughout the Western Hemisphere generate trillions of dollars of economic activities, support the employment of millions of people, and import and export more than 4.5 billion tons of cargo, including goods, clothing, medicine, fuel and building materials, as well as consumer electronics and toys. The volume of cargo shipped by water is expected to dramatically increase by 2020 and the number of passengers traveling through our seaports will also continue to grow. To meet these demands, the American Association of Port Authorities and its members, including the Port of Los Angeles, are committed to keeping seaports navigable, secure and sustainable.
