The Port of Hueneme’s new long-term strategic plan calls for dredging a deeper channel so the port can handle more container ships.

The port also plans to increase its use of rail shipping and make other improvements to stay on the cutting edge of global trade.

The Oxnard Harbor District, which owns and operates the region’s only deepwater commercial port, held a meeting July 13 to gather public input on a draft of the 2020 Strategic Plan.
