OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Outer Harbor Terminal (OHT) is developing a cooperative 60-day transition with the Port of Oakland to wind down operations and return the leased terminal property to the Port.

During this transition, OHT intends to run business as usual and to service its customers and vessels for the next 30 days. OHT expects to take an additional 30 days to complete the delivery of import and empty containers and transition out of the terminal. Import and export operations at OHT will be reduced or shifted to other terminals with the objective to maintain service at the Port with minimal disruption. OHT will work to achieve a successful wind down with a continued focus on both safety and service delivery.

The Port of Oakland has advised OHT that it is working with Terminal Operators and Carriers to prevent interruption of trade. 

OHT is pleased to have been part of the Port of Oakland for the past six years. OHT appreciates sharing the mutual goal with the Port of Oakland for a seamless transition to enable continuity of service.
