Avalon, Catalina Island

Open Competition = Improved Freight Services

For the first time in the City’s history, Avalon residents can choose to end a monopoly that controls all freight coming to and from the Island. Your help is needed to make this happen.

Benefits of Open Competition For Freight Services

  1. Prevents costs from skyrocketing.
  2. Alternative shipping locations (beyond Wilmington).
  3. Better customer service.
  4. More options to deliver drinking water.
  5. Potential to lower cost of gasoline.

Here’s the Issue: A process is quickly unfolding that would result in only one company being granted the exclusive right to provide freight services for the next 29 years. If successful, the monopoly will continue and residents will be stuck with only one freight provider. Costs could skyrocket and we’ll continue to have only a single location to transport items to and from the mainland.
