Principal Ports and Facilities

Metadata Updated: April 25, 2015

The Principal Port file contains USACE port codes, geographic locations (longitude, latitude), names, and commodity tonnage summaries (total tons, domestic, foreign, imports and exports) for Principal USACE Ports. The ports are politically defined by port limits or Corps projects, excluding non-Corps projects not authorized for publication. The determination for the published Principal Ports is based upon the total tonnage for the port for the particular year; therefore the top 150 list can vary from year to year. The port facilities feature describes the physical and inter-modal (infrastructure) characteristics of the California coastal ports of the United States. The feature includes, but is not limited to location (latitude/longitude, waterway, mile, and bank); operations (name, owner, operator, purpose, handling equipment, rates, and details of open-and-covered storage facilities); type and dimension of construction (length of berthing space for vessels and/or barges, depth, apron width, deck elevation, and details of rail-and-highway access); and utilities available (water, electricity, and fire protection).
