The Port of Oakland includes the Oakland Seaport, Oakland International Airport (OAK), and 20 miles of the Oakland Waterfront. The Oakland Seaport is among the top ten busiest container ports in the U.S.; Oakland International Airport is the fifth largest airport in California offering over 375 daily passenger flights and FedEx and UPS hubs; and the Port’s real estate includes commercial developments such as Jack London Square and hundreds of acres of public parks and conservation areas. The Port employs approximately 500 individuals and has annual revenues of approximately $400 million and is independently financed.

The Port is a dynamic and fast paced work environment working closely with its neighboring communities and its diverse array of tenants who utilize the facilities.
