Facilities & Services Overview

Unknown-1.jpegLRTC Terminal operations are conducted on the Inner Harbor of the City of Richmond situated on the northeasterly shore of San Francisco Bay. The Ship Channel leading to the Terminal is maintained by the United States Army Corps of Engineers at a depth of 38 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).

Cargo at LRTC is handled at two berths, Berth A which is 650 feet (198.17m) and Berth B which is 850 feet (259.15m). The maximum size vessel loaded at LRTC had a DWT of 62,105LT and LOA of 781 feet (238.01m).

The wharf at Berth A is expressly constructed to handle Heavy Lift Cargos. The wharf and the cranes have been seismically updated to handle heavier cargos. The wharf at Berth B is 850 feet long and due to the water depth is restricted to certain vessel types and sizes.  The maximum beam for any vessel at either berth is 106 feet (32.3 meters).


Cargo delivered by trucks is unloaded with portable truck unloading systems which can easily be moved to various locations at the terminal.

Five and one-half acres of uncovered, concrete-surfaced storage immediately adjacent the docks are available and designed to handle the same heavy loading as the wharves.

LRTC's weighing facilities consist of two computerized highway truck scales operated and one 350 ton capacity railroad scale. Levin Richmond Terminal issues Certified Weights for trucks and railcars.
