The Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Gothenburg have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen their cooperation in a range of areas including sustainability, digital and physical infrastructure, and potential trade opportunities. The MOU will focus on sharing best practices, exchanging ideas, and consultation on issues critical to both ports, such as supply chain efficiency and digital technology. The two ports said that through data-driven insights in real-time for load planning, forecasts and tracking, the tool creates room for streamlining traffic, and thus reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The two ports will also collaborate on alternative fuels, as well as on strategies to incorporate new and emerging green technologies to minimize the impact of port operations on local communities and the overall environment.
The Port of Los Angeles, Port of Long Beach, and C40 Cities have also begun discussions with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to establish a green and digital shipping corridor between Singapore and the San Pedro Bay port complex.
