“Goods movement is southern California’s largest industry. We rely on all modes running on all cylinders to keep our ports attractive to shippers and businesses across the country. That’s why Californians should be pleased with the huge private investments freight railroads are making to continually improve service, efficiency and capacity.”

Elizabeth Warren is the Executive Director of FuturePorts, a membership-based advocacy group that represents business interests at the San Pedro Bay Ports in Southern California. FuturePorts advocates for balance between economic growth and environmental stewardship on behalf of its members, focusing on policies affecting goods movement at the local, state, and federal levels.

Prior to joining FuturePorts in 2006, Warren was the Public Policy Manager for transportation and environmental issues at the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, where she also managed the Mobility 21 Coalition. Her experience includes over 15 years in the global engineering and construction industry, working for firms such as CH2M HILL and Jacobs on national port, railroad, and transportation projects.
