Take a deep breath. For those who are looking for jobs in Long Beach, a new opportunity may be out there and in the works. After a full year of negotiations, there is an announcement that states that the Port of Long Beach will be working with Orient Overseas Container Line to develop the Middle Harbor region. By adding to this facility, it could make the Long Beach port the busiest in the country and it will add thousands of new jobs to the city, a city that needs them.
The plan will provide a 40 year lease to the company, a shipping company from Hong Kong. The company does container shipping as well as provides logistics services. The project is the largest port terminal project on the continent as it will cost $4.6 billion.
