TradePort California is a coordinated and integrated system of logistics, clean energy and investment zone infrastructure that extends from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach through the entire Central Valley and to the Sacramento and Bay Area regions. This Market Area stretches over a 425-mile-long road and rail logistics corridor and will include a system of TradePort and Satellite TradePort hubs in strategic locations.
The TradePort California logistics corridor runs through a combined region of over 31 million people, with about half of that in the Central Valley, Sacramento, and Bay Area. The TradePort system is designed to efficiently serve the entire Market Area’s considerable consumption and production markets. The TradePort California corridor overlays the Highway 99/transcontinental rail line alignment and is the primary commercial corridor connecting Northern California and Southern California. This corridor is an important national freight corridor and one of the busiest and most congested freight corridors in North America.
TradePort hubs are envisioned at four locations along the corridor, with up to seven Satellite TradePorts feeding cargo to the main corridor spine. TradePorts are being planned as up to 3,000-6,000 acre districts, with a 150-300 acre Logistics Core Zone located in the center. The substantial efficiencies associated with proximity to the Logistics Core Zone will create market demand for a range of private manufacturing and logistics investment and remaining land will be developed as a TradePort Investment Zones that will host a wide variety of manufacturing and distribution investments. Importantly, included in each TradePort plan are investments in retail services, accommodation, and a skills academy.
