San Joaquin County Profile

 
About this area:
As the northernmost county in the Central Valley, San Joaquin bridges northern and central California. Its geographical position places the county within a dynamic growth corridor ideally situated for business and industry. San Joaquin has cultivated extensive transportation facilities. The Port of Stockton serves ships from around the world, via the Stockton Channel to San Francisco Bay. Ocean vessels regularly traverse the 75-nautical mile voyage from the Golden Gate Bridge into Stockton. Interstate highways throughout the county, both east-west and north-south, provide access and same-day delivery service to major California markets. With five railroads, an airport that offers both passenger and freight transport, and the Port of Stockton, San Joaquin County is a central staging and meeting place in California.
