California has announced an investment of over $1.5 billion to enhance operations and capacity at its ports. The funding will support 15 projects, creating 20,000 jobs and reducing environmental impacts, and will also improve the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, as well as trade centres across the state. An additional $350 million will be allocated to projects that eliminate rail crossings and reduce emissions. The investment prioritizes zero-emission initiatives and aligns with California’s efforts to combat climate change. The grants aim to modernize ports, improve efficiency, and create a more dynamic distribution network.
