“Shippers Transport Express hauls 400 loaded import containers off the terminal every night,” pointed out Port of Oakland Maritime Director John Driscoll. “That frees up space at the terminal for additional cargo and makes it easy to collect those containers for delivery.”
By staging containers away from terminals, cargo pickup time is reduced significantly, from 75 minutes to 15 minutes or less, according to the port.
Rent for the Shippers Transport Express property will average $4 million annually. The port will invest $7 million toward paving the land for container parking.
