Founded in 2007 as an NVOCC, West Coast Shipping has become one of the largest international car shipping companies in the United States. After shipping thousands of our own containers through the port of Oakland, we not only gained valuable knowledge of the shipping industry, we also discovered where the trucking industry could be improved. Instead of returning empty containers to the port, they could be used for other customers in the area looking to load and export their goods. By avoiding an empty trip to the port, both parties save time by not returning empty containers and checking them out again. We currently work with over a dozen local business and all marine lines. We continue to work towards expanding our drayage network in Oakland and saving our customers time and money.
In 2017, the drayage department became known as Oakland Container Trucking.
