San Joaquin County has a robust goods movement network, with more than 7,000 lane miles and well-traveled highways such as State Route 99, I-5, State Route 132, I-580, I-205, State Route 120, State Route 4, and State Route 12. Connections to major destinations are imperative for our region. Highway interconnections position San Joaquin County as a cost-effective location for large companies’ west coast distribution centers.
Another global goods movement mode is the Port of Stockton, which handled 4.71 million metric tons of cargo in 21 different commodities in 2017. (Port of Stockton Annual Report, 2017)
