Women Port Leaders Recognized

Despite the barriers they face, women in the field of logistics work hard to make a difference and are paving the way for a new generation of women to be inspired to join the field. AAPA applauds the leadership of Kristen Decas, CEO and director of the Port of Hueneme, and Elaine Forbes, executive director of the Port of San Francisco, selected by Global Trade Magazine as part of the year’s top ten women in logistics. Decas has helped her port to generate more than $1 billion in annual economic impact and to create thousands of new jobs; and Forbes, who oversees a responsible and sustainable management of the port, both economically and environmentally, continues to further her port’s opportunity to serve the City of San Francisco.
