Update from the Port of Oakland – Fully Operational as of 11 AM

Oakland, Calif.– November 3, 2011 – The Port of Oakland is now fully operational. Workers in the maritime area of the Port continue to return to their jobs and seaport operations are returning to normal. Operations at the Oakland International Airport and real estate areas continue as normal from yesterday.

All entrances to the Port are open. There are truck traffic lines at some gates, and terminal operations are processing backlogs from yesterday’s disruptions.

The Port of Oakland commends all of the diverse stakeholders involved – our employees, our marine terminal tenants, organized labor, the truckers and other businesses working in the maritime area, the City and our law enforcement partners, as well as the marchers – for keeping the peace in the Port area last night, and for allowing us all to get back to work together today.

The Port of Oakland, its tenants, business partners and labor unions together generate over 73,000 jobs in the region and are connected to over 800,000 jobs across the country.

The Port will continue to provide operational updates throughout the day.
