Ports Bring Home The Goods: Learn More...


San Diego Bay is located about 96 nautical miles southeast of Los Angeles and just north of the United States-Mexico border. San Diego's close proximity to open ocean and lack of shipping congestion make it an excellent location for cargo shipping.

The Port serves as a transshipment facility for the region. The year-round mild climate is conducive to handling all types of cargo: container, dry bulk, liquid bulk, refrigerated, vehicle, breakbulk, and project cargo.

The Port's two marine cargo facilities are Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal and National City Marine Terminal. The Port also owns the B Street Cruise Ship Terminal.
