Port of Oakland Launches Maritime Operations Web Portal

Up-to-the minute information available at www.portofoakland.com


Oakland, Calif. – Feb. 11, 2015 – The Port of Oakland today launched its newest Web portal to provide up-to-the-minute maritime operational updates. Visitors can access the Web portal through a yellow pop-up message on the Port of Oakland’s Web site home page: www.portofoakland.com

The new Web portal is a response to the prolonged waterfront labor talks which have created slowdowns along U.S. West coast ports. The portal provides real-time information in blog format and allows visitors to receive customized e-mail alerts. The portal also contains key contact information for marine terminals, terminal operators, rail operators, and government partners.

The Port of Oakland’s new Web portal was specifically designed with the Port’s customers and business partners in mind. Check the portal daily for status updates on port operations and labor-management negotiations.
