Port of Redwood City Overview


The Port of Redwood City, located 18 nautical miles south of San Francisco, is the only deepwater port in south San Francisco Bay. Strategically located between San Francisco and the rapidly growing Silicon Valley/San Jose  region, the Port provides excellent inland transportation access via U.S. Highway 101 and Union Pacific Railroad. Our key location enables tenants to save both time and shipping costs.

The Port of Redwood City specializes in bulk, neo-bulk and liquid cargoes.

The Redwood City channel is a federally funded navigation project maintained at 30 feet (MLLW) . Wharf/cargo facilities are described under port berthing facilities. Just as important as our modern berthing and transportation facilities is our staff of Port professionals who provide expertise and services to make your marine cargo operation a success. Unencumbered by the constraints of a large organization, our Port staff will move quickly to put together the customized service needed in today's complex international transportation system.

Our combination of having a strategic location, available deepwater facilities and efficient service, has enabled the Port of Redwood City to become the fastest growing "small" bulk port in California." By focusing our port development efforts on dry bulk, neo-bulk and specialized cargo, we look forward to the Port's continued growth.

A five-member Board of Port Commissioners, which is appointed by the City Council, governs the Port. Commissioners serve four year terms. The City of Redwood City Charter gives the Port Commission the authority to set policy and mange the Port, including budgetary policy and the selection of the Executive Director.

Experienced personnel through one administrative complex - the Port staff - provide all of the Port's services.The Port of Redwood City publishes tariffs, assigns berths, and supervises cargo activity, property management, and security services to its customers.

Executive Director Michael J. Giari and his staff welcome your interest and invite your inquiries concerning the Port of Redwood City's services and maritime facilities.
