Sea Routes

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.

Getting You In And Out Faster

  • Port approach is a deep water canyon allowing quick and efficient access to the shipping channel from The Port.
  • Secure, clean, well maintained port complex.
  • Free X-rays by on-site CBP and all cargo scanned for radiation signatures at no cost (at gate) allows for timely inspections.
