Shipping Cars To or From Port of San Francisco, California
The West Coast is well known for its marine activities, including port trade activities. The States of Washington, Oregon, and California provide the west coast sea ports that the neighboring states depend on for international ocean freight services. The neighboring states which include Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona - and even Wyoming and Colorado - are landlocked in nature. Most of their international trading activities happen through the sea ports on the coastal states on America’s western hemisphere. For international car shipping services, car haulers first have to haul the vehicle(s) via road on long haul trucks to the closest and most convenient sea port available. Among these sea ports in consideration is the Port of San Francisco, California.
