      Utilizing the BlueWater Reporting Terminal Analysis tool, the chart above provides an overview of the total deployed capacity (TEUs) going through four terminals at the Port of Oakland in California. The Port of Oakland recently announced that it has set a record, handling 82,397 TEUs in October, the busiest October in its 91-year history. In addition, nearly 168,289 TEUs were moved in August and September, making it the Port of Oaklands busiest peak season ever. 
      BlueWater Reporting shows the port is called by 26 liner services that also sail to regions outside North America. All 26 services that call the Port of Oakland deploy fully cellular containerships. Overall, the services combine for a total deployed capacity of 1,409,846 TEUs.
      The Oakland International Container Terminal currently sees the greatest deployed capacity at 1,025,138 TEUs, or 73 percent of the total capacity. The terminal is called by 18 services, making it the most utilized terminal at the Port of Oakland. THE Alliance and OCEAN Alliance operate more services than any other carrier to call the terminal with four each. 2M Alliance comes in second with two services that call the terminal. The remaining eight services are operated by ANL, APL, Hamburg Sud, Hapag-Lloyd, Hyundai, MSC, Pasha Hawaii, and Polynesia Line. 
      The TraPac Terminal, with 19 percent of the total deployed capacity, handles the second largest amount at 268,138 TEUs. THE Alliance dominates this terminal, operating five services with 38 vessels, and is the only carrier that calls TraPac Terminal.
      The Ben E. Nutter Terminal hangs in third amongst the other terminals in Oakland, handling only 111,646 TEUs, or 8 percent. This terminal is called by just two services, the Hangzhou Bay Bridge and Jade Express, which are operated by OCEAN Alliance. Both services deploy over 52,000 TEUs each, on 12 vessels calling Ben E. Nutter Terminal.
