Commissioners green light new Seaport Logistics Complex for Port of Oakland

Port of Oakland commissioners have given the final go-ahead for a project to convert a large part of a decommissioned army base into a high-tech Seaport Logistics Complex, the Port announced on Friday.

When completed and running the centre will revolutionize seaport import and export efficiency, putting the northern California port ahead of the curve, claim advocates.

Port Maritime Director John Driscoll said in the official release: “This Complex will make it faster and cheaper to import and export containerized goods internationally.”

Under the plan, CenterPoint Properties of Oakbrook, Illinois, will build a 440,000-square foot distribution centre beside the Port’s rail yard and across the street from marine terminals.
