Gene Seroka Works In The Great Port of Los Angeles
The Port of Los Angeles is huge. It is literally the gateway to and from Asia for much of the goods imported into America. In one month the port may process more than 700,000 container units. Thousands of trucks and dozens of two-mile long trains move containers into and out of the port every day. It’s economic impact is felt in every state in the U.S.
The Port of Los Angeles is also embarking on a new waterfront for visitors which will provide an upclose look at the ships and port not seen elsewhere.
Gene Seroka, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles joins Paul to tell the story behind huge container ships carrying more than 20,000 containers, the need to build bigger cranes to handle bigger ships and the amazing speed and efficiency of the workings of the harbor which few ever see.
