The Port of Long Beach knows the importance of doing what it can to protect the supply chain workers who continue to move the nation’s cargo during the COVID-19 pandemic. After learning about Alhambra-based trucker Rafael Saavedra’s difficulty finding a protective mask, the Tenant Services team took action to give him a box of 500 face coverings for personal use and to distribute to other truckers.
