Here’s the Port of Oakland story….in 120 seconds!

Time-lapse tour of seaport, airport, city’s waterfront highlights website upgrade

Oakland, Calif. – Feb. 25, 2015 – Here’s a two-minute warning: it takes only 120 seconds to learn a lot about the Port of Oakland. The Port unveiled a new time-lapse video tour today of its three businesses:

  • The Oakland seaport;
  • Oakland International Airport; and
  • More than 20 miles of shoreline commercial real estate that includes the hip and historic Jack London Square entertainment district.

The video is available here on the Port of Oakland website. It’s part of an online upgrade that provides timely, relevant information for Port stakeholders at In addition to the video, the Port’s website now has an Operational Status blog. It provides daily updates on conditions at the nation’s fifth-busiest seaport.

The video was photographed from seaport cranes, airport towers and other San Francisco Bay Area vantage points. It condenses the broad scope of international trade and transportation into fast-moving video vignettes.
