Port of Oakland Boat Tour aboard the Commodore Cruise Luxury Yacht, 'Merlot'!

Join representatives from the Port of Oakland and network with Bay Area Supply Chain professionals from major suppliers and corporations on a boat tour of the 5th busiest container port in the U.S. Port officials recently announced that July, 2016 was the port’s busiest month in 10 years. During the month of July, the port received 153 visits from container ships, up from 136 during the same period in 2015.

Immediately following the port tour, guests will take a short walk across Jack London Square to Scott's Seafood Restaurant for a dinner keynote and Q&A program.

Chris Lytle and Brian McKiernan will co-present an informative discussion and Q&A session to discuss new opportunities at the Port of Oakland and how current supply chain trends, including Panama Canal expansion impact operations and west coast trade.
