TraPac has added its Oakland terminal to the Green Marine program to obtain environmental certification. It joins TraPac’s Los Angeles terminal, which holds the distinction of being the first terminal operator in California to become a part of Green Marine in 2020.
Opened in 1990, the Oakland facility is part of a subsidiary that is wholly owned by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) to competitively operate container terminals with state-of-the-art facilities and technologies.
TraPac’s Los Angeles terminal was the first North American container terminal to be fully automated and the first worldwide to offer an automated on-dock rail facility. Its automated cargo handling equipment reduced particulate matter and NOx emissions by more than 99% and GHG emissions by more than 90% per TEU when compared to competing terminals.
Its two locations in Southern and Northern California together employ emission-reduction technologies that reduce pollutants from vessels by 80%.
TraPac’s investments have reduced nearly all its emissions, making its operations 90% cleaner than competing terminals.
