Ideal Location

Overview

Efficient and Uncongested Sea Access

The Port of Hueneme’s prime global geographic location provides shorter sailing times and quicker access to berths. The only commercial deep-water port between Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Port of Hueneme is adjacent to major populated urban areas, automotive epicenters and California’s agriculture heartland. The Port is just 60 miles north of the major metropolitan center of Los Angeles and offers a highly efficient and uncongested alternative to other west coast ports.

Prime Intermodal Link to North America, Canada and Mexico

The Port connects to the Union Pacific Railroad, providing an important intermodal link to North America, Canada and Mexico. Convenient near-dock rail is provided by Ventura County Railway, a Class III short-line railroad with a 12-mile loop track operated by Genesee & Wyoming Railroad.

Easy and Convenient Vehicular Access

The Port’s ideal location provides uncongested access to industrial and commercial centers of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. The Port Intermodal Corridor (PIC) is an uncongested strategic access route that connects the Port’s main entrance with Highway 101, Interstate 5, and beyond.

The Port’s close proximity to Highway 101 connects to Highway 126, Highway 232, Highway 118 and Highway 405 transportation corridors, while secondary access to Highway 101 is possible via Ventura Road, a 4-lane roadway located east of The Port’s main gate.
