   A $67 million waterfront expansion concluded at the Port of Oakland this month as TraPac marine terminal opened its newest vessel berth to arriving containerships.
   The milestone signals completion of a two-year project at Oakland’s second-largest terminal that has nearly doubled TraPac’s footprint from 66 to 123 acres; boosted its fleet of ship-to-shore cranes from four to seven; and added a third 1,400-foot-long dock for berthing mega containerships.
   TraPac officially began its new era in Oakland when the container vessel Bay Bridge tied up at Berth 25.
   Officials said TraPac’s expansion is the latest in a series of significant investments at the Port of Oakland. In November, Lineage Logistics and Dreisbach Enterprises opened Cool Port Oakland, a $90 million refrigerated distribution center. Last June, Oakland International Container Terminal completed a $14 million project to heighten four cranes. TraPac has said it will raise two cranes as well.
   TraPac handles about 15 percent of the containerized cargo moving through Oakland. Much of it is refrigerated cargo destined for Japan, a major Oakland trading partner. TraPac said that during expansion it increased plug-in spaces for storing refrigerated containers from 388 to 860.

   As part of its build-out, TraPac last summer opened a new gate complex for harbor truck drivers. It also purchased nine new pieces of cargo-handling equipment to lift containers.
   TraPac signed a 14-year lease with the port in 2016 as a precursor to its expansion.
We are no longer facing a future highway maintenance crisis. We ’ re living it. Every day we fail to invest we ’ re putting more lives at risk, and truck drivers are on the front lines.
Drewry’s World Container Index, a composite of container freight rates on eight major routes to and from the U.S., Europe and Asia, was down 3.2 percent to $1.664.24 per 40-foot container as of Feb. 7.
