Port of San Diego

San Diego’s port district was created in 1962, the citizens approving more than $10 million later in 1964 for improvements to the district adding an air terminal and the construction of a new cargo terminal.

The first cruise ships offered scheduled cruises out of San Diego in 1970 making 10 day trips to Mexico. Later on in 1983 the San Diego Industry Consortium was formed for the purpose of promoting San Diego as a cruise destination.

Three years later, the B Street Pier Cruise ship Terminal was officially dedicated to this endeavor, with more than 25,000 passengers embarking and disembarking from the terminal. The importation of vehicles by the Pasha Group at the National City Marine terminal began in 1990, with a total of 15,589 vehicle units imported that first year alone.

Presently the Port imports more than 390,000 vehicles annually. Later in 2001, the Port’s Board of Commissioners announced a 20 year lease with the Dole Food Company. This marked the port’s entry into refrigerated containerized cargo shipments, which now ships out 1.8 billion pounds of bananas annually. The Port of San Diego’s vision statement is “To foster a world-class port through excellence in public service”. The Port of San Diego is the fourth largest port of the eleven ports in California.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
