Message from the President

E-mail Print

Dear ACRI members,

I wanted to give you a quick update regarding ACRI’s effort to help reduce congestion, particularly related to the exporting of materials, at the Port of Long Beach and Los Angeles.  On Tuesday, I along with several ACRI Board members met with the Chief of Staff to Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the lack of transparency in the Pier Pass program. The Mayor’s office shared our concerns and indicated the lack of transparency is an issue that is impacting a growing number of stakeholders.

Next week we’ll be meeting with Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino, whose district includes the Port of Los Angeles.

In closing, thank you to everyone who recently sent letters to elected officials on this issue.  Your letters had a huge impact.

I will continue to keep you updated as we work to address congestion at our Ports.

Brett Jones
