Plans for the Port of Stockton

A three-year slide in ship-borne tonnage at the Port of Stockton came to an end in 2010 as cargoes totaled 1.7 million metric tons, up about 30 percent from the year before, and signs point to a continuing revival, officials report.

“We’re not back to the pre-financial meltdown days, but we’re on our way,” Port Director Richard Aschieris said Thursday.

The port counted 122 ships making stops in Stockton last year, up from 102 in 2009.
