Oakland port official discusses actions to alleviate shipping problems for exporters

Over 98% of California’s walnut exports leave through the Port of Oakland, according to U.S. Census data. The port has primarily been a second port-of-call after the larger ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, though a few carriers offer first port-of-call service into Oakland. The global supply chain crunch has been acutely felt at the Port of Oakland, ranging from vessel skips, equipment shortages, labor constraints and congestion.
