About GYPA

The Greater Yuma Port Authority, Inc. (GYPA) was established on September 18, 2000. The creation of the GYPA was to provide a two-port solution for the key Port of Entry between San Luis, Arizona, and San Luis, Sonora. Currently, the four member entities on the GYPA board are the City of San Luis, Yuma County, the City of Yuma and the Sovereign Nation of the Cocopahs. 

This regional cooperative was brought forth through the efforts of each of our governmental entity-appointed board members to pose a more efficient flow of cross-border traffic and trade that in turn enhances Yuma County's economic wellness. GYPA continues its promotion and development of industrial areas near the San Luis II Port of Entry. The Authority remains involved with Port users and other stakeholders - both north and southbound - to ensure efficient port procedures and cross-border flow of trade and traffic. 

The Greater Yuma Port Authority is a private 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation.
