|The final step in the Port’s South Terminal Modernization came to fruition today. Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony for the Port’s cargo enhancement project was much more than a typical golden shovel event, it represented over 5 years of planning and execution to grow the Port’s capacity and provide over 500 new sustainable jobs.
“In accordance with the Port’s 2020 General Plan, this space will now provide a special concreate working area that will double the cargo handling area of the South Terminal and will provide an efficient, safe, and productive working area for our existing two harbor cranes and our newest addition, a $7 million hybrid electric crane being provided by Ports America,’ stated Oxnard Harbor District Board President Jess Herrera. “Our Port motto states, ‘There is only way, and that is forward’. Today, we have taken a step in that direction, into the future.”
