Horizon makes change in Oakland terminal operations

Advertiser Staff

Horizon Lines Inc. has switched its handling of freight destined for Hawaiçi, Guam and Micronesia through Oakland to a different port terminal operator in a move it said will include several service enhancements.

The No. 2 carrier of ocean cargo between the Mainland and Hawaiçi said it switched to Ports America, the largest terminal operator and stevedoring company in the Americas, for its Oakland service. Horizon said the move to Ports America includes gaining extended gate hours and lunchtime deliveries on ship days.
Horizon said it previously used APM Terminals as stevedore and terminal operator at its former facility in the Port of Oakland.
