Long Beach, located in the southern part of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, has experienced spikes of massive growth throughout its history. Founded in 1897 as a resort town with a favorable climate and agricultural potential, the city quickly grew when oil was discovered nearby in 1921. Though it retained its reputation as a beachside getaway, by the 1930s Long Beach had become an oil town, operating the fourth-largest oil producer in the U.S, Wilmington Oil Field. The Ford Motor Company built a factory in Long Beach in 1929, and the city would further its manufacturing prowess during WWII as home to both a Navy shipyard and the Douglas Aircraft Company’s largest facility producing planes. Perhaps the most substantial contributing factor to the city’s economic success is the Port of Long Beach. Built in 1911 and quickly expanded, the port occupies 3,200 acres of land and generates $100 billion in trade every year, second in the country only to its adjoining counterpart, the Port of Los Angeles. Port of Long Beach is a major gateway to international shipping, particularly to Asian markets, and is comprised of state of the art facilities and technologies. Class I railroads Union Pacific and BNSF serve the port, and an on-dock rail yard for easy loading and unloading of rail and intermodal cargo directly connects to the Alameda Corridor, a 20-mile expressway linking the port rail yard to transcontinental rail lines near downtown Los Angeles. Between its state of the art port, extensive rail network, significant trucking access to nearby major interstates and close proximity to LAX’s air freight shipping facilities, shipping cargo to and from Long Beach is both versatile and affordable.
