A key factor in the Port’s continuing growth has the steady improvement to our rail system, particularly since the acquisition of Rough and Ready Island in January of 2000. Rail has always been a defining feature of commerce at the Port of Stockton, and today we have the capacity to handle up to three unit trains per week. These mile-long trains usually carry a single commodity, such as iron ore, gypsum, or wheat. Again, we are in the process of expanding our rail capacity even further, and soon we will be able to handle as many as six trains per week.
