Boston Harbor Now’s Director of Policy Jill Valdes Horwood and Director of Planning Alice Brown host a bi-weekly video blog covering topics related to the harbor. Watch their most recent episode about ships and working ports below.
In this six minute vlog, Horwood and Brown discuss cargo ships and how products move across the oceans. The two explain that Conley Container Terminal in the Seaport is just one part of the working port economy. Large container ships you see in Boston’s inner harbor are actually heading to one of four designated port areas (DPAs) located in the Seaport, East Boston, Chelsea or Everett. These vessels bring important products Massachusetts residents use every day such as liquid natural gas (LNG), road salt and cars. Watch the video above to learn more about the importance of the working ports around Boston Harbor.
