In 2016, about 77% of Oakland's trade was with Asia. Europe accounted for 12%, Australia/New Zealand and Oceania about 2%, and other foreign economies about 1%. About 7% of Oakland's trade is domestic (Hawaii and Guam) and military cargo. California's three major container ports carry approximately 50% of the nation's total container cargo volume.
