The ITS Bulk and Oversized Terminal will use state-of-the-art, technically-advanced, environmental practices and procedures to achieve low emissions objectives. As former City of Economic Development Director Fred Blackwell said in 2012, the OBOT is something the environmental community will like.

The website for the Bulk and Oversized terminal explained it this way:

The waterfront plays a vital role in the west coast marine highway, yet the urban location of ’s port means there is limited space for expansion of maritime trade and logistics services. The Bulk and Oversized Terminal (OBOT) is a unique opportunity to intensify nearly 20 acres of underutilized maritime property through development of a state-of-the-art, multi-commodity marine bulk terminal development located on the West Gateway of the former Army Base in , California.

With direct access to San Francisco Bay channel depths that reach 50 foot “mean lower low water” (MLLW) and newly constructed near-dock rail lines designated for OBOT customers, the Bulk and Oversized Terminal development is positioned to streamline customer logistics supply chains, create more service options for U.S. shippers seeking greater access to and from foreign markets, solidify ’s reputation as a major west coast trade center for American resources, and carry on the proud history of ’s working waterfront through the creation of long-term job opportunities for residents.
