The planned Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility is the centerpiece of the Port of Long Beach’s rail capital improvement program. It will shift more cargo to “on-dock rail,” where containers are taken to and from marine terminals by trains. Moving cargo by on-dock rail is cleaner and more efficient, as it reduces truck traffic. No cargo trucks would visit the facility.
The facility will be built in phases and as each is completed, they will enhance capacity and operations. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2024 and completion of the entire project is expected in 2032.
