The Port of Oakland moved $39.3 billion in traded goods in 2012. This translates into approximately 44,000 jobs and $7 billion in annual economic impact.
Project Summary: North America 3PL (NA3PL) offers premier warehousing, fulfillment and distribution systems for small, medium and large-sized companies specializing in imports to Northern California and the North American market or that export to the world via the Oakland gateway. NA3PL is committed to the highest standards in all relationships with customers, suppliers, environment and the community and distinguishes its company from existing 3PL competition doing business in the Oakland region. Oakland’s well-established port region is a world-class international cargo transportation and distribution hub. Located on the mainland shore of San Francisco Bay, one of the great natural harbors of the world, Oakland was among the first ports globally to specialize in the containerized cargo operations.
The Port of Oakland is the 3rd-largest (busiest) port on the U.S. West Coast, and 5th-busiest in the nation. Importantly, it is one of only three major U.S. ports that exports more cargo than it imports. Nearly $7 billion in goods were exported from the Port of Oakland to China, Japan and South Korea combined in 2012, and imported almost $15 billion in goods from China, Taiwan and Japan. High-profile companies based in the Bay Area, including Apple Computer, Tesla Motors, Gap, Levi Strauss, Williams-Sonoma, and Logitech, are strongly linked to the Bay Area and play an active role in monitoring the environment for international trade. Additionally, California ranks number one among states in agricultural exports at $12.8 billion in 2012, and accounts for 12.4 percent based on total value of all U.S. agricultural exports. NA3PL estimates robust demand for the logistics services offered in its Oakland facility, due to the increasing cargo volume and resulting 3PL services needed and the continuing growth of U.S. exports fueling growth in warehousing, logistics, and support services.
