The US port of Oakland is predicting record cargo volumes over the next five years, with PortStrategy reporting it will handle 8% higher annual volumes than it has ever processed by 2022. The port’s forecast success has been linked to new logistics capabilities, including distribution centres and freight transfer facilities. According to the port’s Strategic Maritime Roadmap, Oakland is expected to handle more than 2.4 million containers in 2018, passing the 2.39m record set three years ago.
