PACED Project

Port Action, Climate, and Environmental Development

The PACED Project serves as the overarching strategic modernization plan for the Port of Hueneme.

This plan consists of multiple components, each of which will be executed over the coming five years and beyond. The Port of Hueneme is one of the most productive and efficient commercial trade gateways for niche cargo on the West Coast and consistently ranks among the top ten U.S. ports for automobiles and fresh produce. Port operations support the community by bringing $2.2 billion in economic activity and creating 20,032 trade-related jobs. Trade through the Port of Hueneme generates more than $173.2 million in direct and related state and local taxes, which fund vital community services.

The Port of Hueneme is applying to receive the unprecedented, historic CA ports funding as the only commercial deepwater seaport between Los Angeles and San Francisco that also stepped up as a relief valve for congestion during the supply chain challenges in our state. The Port of Hueneme is excited to present its PACED Project containing strategic components that will make the port even more economically viable, greener, and ready to continue to serve our local community and the State of California. Fifteen of the Port’s Project components are presented as closely interconnected parts of the entire Project.
