The Value of Partnerships

At the Greater Yuma Port Authority, it’s all about partnerships. Our success is thanks to the hard work of our board, which includes members from the City of San Luis, Yuma County, the City of Yuma and the Sovereign Nation of the Cocopahs.

The Arizona Department of Transportation's (ADOT) goal at our borders is to always provide a safe, and efficient flow of commerce into the State of Arizona. Working with the Greater Yuma Port Authority enables ADOT to interact with our valuable stakeholders at the San Luis II port of entry, and provides the proper connectivity for a valuable international supply chain.
