This coalition, led by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation, seeks to increase efficiency in the goods movement ecosystem of Los Angeles while investing in technology development for the region's blue and green economies. This project seeks to revitalize and develop Los Angeles’ port capabilities in a more humanitarian and environmentally responsible way. If provided an implementation grant, the coalition proposes to support this cluster by building an innovation center, widening access to program assistance technologies at ports, transforming last-mile fulfillment, and increasing entrepreneurship and workforce development programs aimed at Los Angeles’ port and logistics workers. Expanding opportunity in Los Angeles’ good’s movement cluster will not only provide economic competitiveness across the region but opportunity for dozens of underserved communities within the region.
