An Essential Place For Business
10 Nov 2020
San Joaquin County’s infrastructure assets have been in place for decades — its inland Port of Stockton, commercial airport, intermodal facilities operated by BNSF and Union Pacific and highways. But they are increasingly deemed essential in 2020 as businesses rethink their property portfolios with an eye to lowering real estate costs and accessing workers tired of commuting to the far pricier Bay Area to the west.
A largely agricultural county that supplies much of the country’s produce, San Joaquin is also home to thriving medical device, food processing, transportation and logistics and fulfillment services industries. Amazon opened a second large-scale facility in Stockton in 2018; it operates another in Tracy and others elsewhere in Northern California.
