The Port of Oakland’s users have been suffering all year with the lack of the vessel calls. The long delays in Southern California have resulted in ocean carriers bypassing Oakland and heading back to Asia as quickly as possible to capture their next shipload of imports.

Importers have had their formerly Oakland-bound containers discharged in Long Beach and Los Angeles and have struggled with added delays, complications and costs.

As a result, the Port of Oakland has been focusing on restoring services to the port, implementing a vessel queueing system and improving the process for exporters, including an off-dock empty yard.

The empty yard will open on March 1, 2022 on the former site of Howard Terminal. Howard Terminal may sound familiar to you. It is currently used for truck parking and is the location targeted by the Oakland A’s baseball team for a new waterfront stadium and residential and commercial development project.
