The Port of Stockton's cargo volume hit an all-time high in 2018, port officials said this week.
Although up just slightly compared with 2017, overall cargo volume grew for the third straight year and reached a record-setting 4.7 million metric tons, port officials said. The inland port—which is situated on a deep-water channel located in the extended San Francisco Bay Area—also saw its tenant base hit a new record for the second straight year.
"In the current climate of challenging international trade, these accomplishments are precedent setting and once again highlight the unique strengths of the Port of Stockton's staff and facilities," Port Director Richard Aschieris said in a statement announcing the yearly results.
The Port of Stockton is the fourth largest port in California and handles dry bulk, breakbulk, liquid bulk, warehousing and project cargoes. Services include stevedoring, warehousing, inventory management and transloading, port officials said.
