Levin Richmond Terminal Corporation (LRTC) is a private dry bulk handling marine terminal located in the San Francisco Bay. Located on deep water, LRTC is served by the Richmond Pacific Railroad which connects directly with the BNSF and Union Pacific Railroad. The marine terminal is easily accessed via Interstate Highway 580 which connects to several other local highways for easy transport of goods.
The marine terminal maintains two berths for the loading and discharging of vessels. Loading is performed with portable ship-loaders or shore-side cranes. The discharging of vessels is performed with the four shore-side cranes onto the berth and into railcars and trucks. Storage of cargo can be on the berth or at two off-site locations near the marine terminal.
Railcars are unloaded through a bottom-dump system and moved through the terminal on conveying systems for temporary storage. Trucks are unloaded over portable truck unloading systems. Railcars and trucks can be loaded with mobile front-end loaders.
Storage is available adjacent to the two berths and at two locations near the marine terminal. These areas are contained and allow several different cargo types to be stored at the facility. The storage areas have paved concrete surfaces to allow for easy stockpiling and clean-up.
The Richmond Inner Harbor Channel is maintained at -38 feet (11.59 meters) mean low water (MLL). At high tide, the channel can increase to 44 feet (13.41 meters) of water for handling larger vessels including Super handy-size and Panamax.
