Armando Ramos Makes Things Happen as a Team Player at Los Angeles Area Ports

If you find yourself peering across the water either in San Pedro or Long Beach, you’ll more than likely get an eyeful of incoming cargo ships, giant cranes unloading and loading shipping containers, and the men and women who make it all happen. You may or may not put a lot of thought into what’s in those red and green containers, but they can house anything from vehicles to products that are commonly found on the shelves at your local grocery store.

Armando Ramos, an International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Marine Clerk, is one of the people who help make it all happen! As a marine clerk, Armando is responsible for the flow of the cargo within the Port of LA and Long Beach when it enters the terminal. The containers are removed from the ship and placed into the designated import area, referred to as “the hub,” so truck drivers can pick them up for delivery.
