The Port of Oakland is far from the biggest market for container trucking. But it aims to be among the most efficient for drivers.


Oakland, the fourth-largest port on the North American West Coast, saw container volumes rise 5 percent last year to 2.5 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), its best growth since 2010. Overall, the ports from Vancouver to Los Angeles/Long Beach saw total container volume growth last year of just under 4 percent.
