Twenty miles south of downtown L.A is the nation's largest container port and one of the busiest and most important trade gateways in the world. The Port of Los Angeles, profiled in a new eight-part series from National Geographic, is a city within a city with a workforce of 16,000. Executive Director Geraldine Knatz talks about the challenges of massive expansion while curbing pollution, maintaining security and counterterrorism efforts at a high-profile facility, and managing a myriad of day-to-day operations.
