Night gates at ports called a 'win-win' on congestion relief

California’s trucking industry has honored a Port of Oakland marine terminal for easing the state’s containerized cargo crunch. Oakland International Container Terminal received the first-ever Terminal Recognition Award last week for opening its gates at night.

The California and Harbor trucking associations presented the honor at a conference in Long Beach. The organizations also recognized Long Beach Container Terminal and Yusen Terminals of Los Angeles.
