The Port of Oakland is a major and historically significant port located in Oakland, California. It is the fifth busiest container port in the United States and was the first major U.S. port to build terminals for container ships on the Pacific Coast. The Port underwent a series of improvements in the mid-1990’s to mid-2000’s as part of the port’s capital improvements project.
T.Y. Lin International was responsible for the planning, management, and construction of this endeavor, which included the design and construction of additional container terminals and an intermodal rail facilities. The construction of these intermodal rail facilities greatly increased the productivity of the port, as it allowed for the relatively seamless transfer and movement of container cargo from Oakland, on the west coast, to cities in the eastern section of the United States.
