Facts & Figures

The Port of Oakland loads and discharges more than 99% of the containerized goods moving through Northern California. Oakland's cargo volume makes it the eighth busiest container port in the United States based on Calendar Year 2020 data. San Francisco Bay ranks among the four largest Pacific Coast ports for container cargo, along with Los Angeles and Long Beach in southern California and Seattle and Tacoma (Northwest Seaport Alliance) in Washington state. In 2020, about 76% of Oakland's trade was with Asia. Europe accounted for 14%, Australia/New Zealand and Oceania about 3%, and other foreign nations about 2%. About 5% of Oakland's trade is domestic (primarily Hawaii). California's three major container ports carry approximately half of the nation's total container cargo volume.
