In March of 2006, the Port published its first strategic plan in more than two decades. The 2006 plan articulated a vision for the Port for the decade spanning 2006 to 2016. In 2009, in the heart of the Great Recession, the 2006 plan was updated to reflect the ongoing changes in our operating environment.
The attached 2016 Strategic Plan Update is a final update to the initial 2006 plan, reflecting the evolving priorities and overarching goals driven by the continued operating challenges of bigger ships and the transition in the Port’s executive leadership. The 2016 Strategic Plan update includes these and other changes to highlight our recent achievements and priorities for the Fiscal Year 2016 budget process.
The changes from the 2009 Strategic Plan, while modest, are critical to clarifying the current strategic direction of the Port and its future outlook. The Port has a clear vision for the future – one that balances its role as a facilitator of a seamlessly integrated, end-to-end supply chain, a world leader in optimized goods movement, an innovator of sustainable infrastructure, a pioneer in environmental stewardship and an engine for economic prosperity.
The 2016 Strategic Plan charts the course for the future by outlining the Port’s vision, mission and guiding principles, and by establishing clear goals and strategies in the following areas: Environmental Stewardship; Safety and Security; Community, Business and Government Relations; Sustainable Infrastructure and Supply Chain Optimization; Business Development; Financial Strength; Organizational Development.
The Port of Long Beach Strategic Plan will serve as our roadmap as we journey into the future.
