ABOUT

Navigating Success

In 2015 more than 3.5 million tons of cargo moved through the Port of Stockton, and that number grows nearly every year. We work with upwards of fifty different countries, with goods flowing in both directions. On any given day here at the Port you might see organic grain coming in from Turkey, refined sulfur going out to Australia, or any other of a litany of products that are going to or coming from places all around the world. And of course we do business domestically as well. We regularly work with people all across the U.S., especially right here in the fertile Central Valley of California.

Because here at the Port of Stockton we are very proud to call the Central Valley our home, and we are equally aware that we would not be around today without the hard work and generous help of our neighbors. As such, giving back to the community is always on our minds, and we are eagerly committed not just to commerce, but to both continued job growth here in the area, and also to going above and beyond to protect our local environment. The Port of Stockton was built by Californians and we are California proud!
