Document Description
Establishment of the Port of Richmond, Point Potrero Marine Terminal as the Northern California Port of Entry for imported Honda automobiles. Auto Warehousing Company (AWC) is proposing to expand its existing operations at the Port of Richmond to develop a Northern California Port of Entry for Honda automobiles. AWC currently receives and processes Hyundai and Kia cars imported from Korea by ship. AWC, in cooperation with the Trans Development Group, is proposing to construct improvements to the Point Potrero Marine Terminal (PPMT) that would include repairs to one of the ship berths and creation of a new rail yard adjacent to the ship berths at the PPMT so that imported autos could be loaded directly onto rail cars without the current intermediary step of shuttling them to the BNSF rail yard approximately 1 mile to the north. The PPMT site is located on the southern Richmond shoreline, at the edge of the Richmond Inner Harbor. The PPMT is located at the southern terminus of Canal Boulevard, on Point Potrero, and immediately adjacent to the Harbor Channel, the primary water access to the Port of Richmond.
