From July 1, 2019 to Dec. 31, 2019 – the first half of the Port of Redwood City’s fiscal year – the port moved 1.24 million metric tons of cargo that created $4.7 million of revenue, the port announced this week.
The cargo came from Australia, China, Mexico and Canada, while exported departed for Bangladesh, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia.
“We are pleased that the Port of Redwood City has seen tremendous growth over the last few years,” said Port of Redwood City Board Chairman Ralph Garcia. “Our recent cargo numbers continue to validate a strong construction economic sector. Our port supports well-paying jobs in the region, while serving our community with global connections.”
