The Port of Oakland is a great container ship facility located in Oakland, California, in the San Francisco Bay. The first container ship terminal to be constructed on the Pacific Coast of the United States happened in the Port of Oakland. In 2011, it was the fifth busiest container port in the United States after Newark, Angeles, Long Beach, and Savannah.
The development of the Port of Oakland in 2002, involving creating an integrated container handling system, helped place the port in an extension of the freight market share on the West Coast. The expansion of the market share resulted from the large volume of cargo that came up after the development that had consumed a decade of planning and construction. According to 2019 statistics, the Port of Oakland is ranked 8th in the category of containers in the United States.
