Welcome to APP, Miller Nash Graham & Dunn LLP!
PORT OF PORTLAND PARTNERS WITH COLUMBIA RIVER PORTS TO RETURN CONTAINER SERVICE TO PORT OF LEWISTON
Container service in Lewiston had been stopped for the past
eight months since shipping companies Hapag-Lloyd and Hanjin pulled out
due to labor issues at Port of Portland's Terminal 6, operated by
ICTSI. The Port of Portland is helping subsidize the project, which
officials estimate will become economically sustainable next month.
Containers are loaded on barges in Lewiston and unloaded at the Port of Morrow, Oregon
They are then transferred by rail through Portland to Seattle or Tacoma
before being loaded onto ships for export. The new system reduces
highway congestion and saves roughly $300 per container verses trucking
to the Puget Sound.
Kudos, Ports of Portland, Lewiston, and Morrow for working together for this unique solution!
