Situated in Northern California, Redding is only a few hours away from the Port of Oakland – the third-largest container port in the US, and the 5th busiest. This port is the only place in the US where all 20 top ocean carriers regularly have service. And approximately 41 billion dollars of transit goods are brought through the Port of Oakland every year.

With 7 efficient state-of-the-art terminals and 18 deepwater berths, there simply isn’t another place quite like the Port of Oakland for sea transportation on the western seaboard. We in Shasta County are lucky to be situated so close to such a major hub of transport and economic activity. This makes us an important link in supply chains involving cargo transport/ocean travel.
