Background

The existing federal navigation turning basins in the Oakland Harbor, most recently improved circa 2008, were designed for a 6,500 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) capacity vessel with a 1,139-feet length overall. Vessels routinely calling Oakland today are larger, and in particular longer, than this design vessel. Vessels calling Oakland with lengths greater than 1,139-feet have transit restrictions resulting in inefficiencies and negative economic impacts.
