The Port of Oakland Tries Extended Hours

The Oakland International Container Terminal has handled some 2,500 truck turns per day. The goal of extended hours at the terminal is to increase these turns by 15%. The hours run from 6:30pm to 2:30 am and are to be used for export only.

With the great number and variety of vessels calling at the Port and requiring a wide variety of services, the test is deemed to be a fair one for the experimental project. Results are monitored weekly to determine if target volumes are being reached. The fourth busiest container port in the U.S., $30 billion worth of gods move through it each year.
