Horizon Lines Inc., a provider of domestic ocean shipping and logistics services, has signed a new agreement for marine terminal operations at the Port of Oakland, Calif. The carrier has teamed up with Ports America, the largest terminal operator and stevedoring company operating in the Americas, to service cargo moving through Oakland between the U.S. mainland, Hawaii, Guam and Micronesia.

All transactions are processed via electronic data interchange, with shipment status updates available through NetCaptain, Horizon's online shipment-management portal.
