WoD History:

Oakland, founded in 1852, is the eighth-largest city in California and the county seat of Alameda County. It lies on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, nestled against the Berkeley Hills. To Oakland's north is Berkeley, home to the renowned University of California, Berkeley, and to its west across the Bay Bridge is San Francisco. Southwest of Oakland is San Jose.

Oakland is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the fifth most populated metropolitan area in the United States. The Bay Area has a population of over 7 million. As of 2006, Oakland's population was 411,755, making it the third-largest city in the San Francisco Bay Area, after San Jose and San Francisco.

The Port of Oakland was the first major port on the Pacific Coast of the United States to build terminals for container ships. It is now the fourth busiest container port in the United States; behind Long Beach, Los Angeles, and Newark. Development of an intermodal container handling system in 2002 culminated over a decade of planning and construction to produce a high volume cargo facility that positions the Port of Oakland for further expansion of West Coast freight market share.
