Western Hemisphere Ports Day is a unique opportunity for AAPA members to collaboratively recognize and celebrate the value of ports.

Ports: United for the Future 

United for Prosperity

Ports contribute trillions of dollars to the economy, generate critical tax revenue for local communities, and move billions of tons of cargo for manufacturers, workers, farmers and consumers.

United for Job Creation

Ports are vital job creators in the regions they serve, and will continue to support a strong workforce as shipping volume increases worldwide.

United for Communities

In communities hemisphere-wide, ports are integral partners on issues including transportation, economic development, environmental stewardship, youth outreach, and job training and education.
