“K” Line to move to larger terminal in Tacoma

   International Transportation Service Inc., the U.S. West Coast marine terminal subsidiary of “K” Line, has reached an agreement with the port of Tacoma to move to a larger terminal.

   The company’s “Husky Terminal” in Tacoma will be shifted from terminal 7D to the terminal 3 and 4 area by spring 2005. The new facility will provide Husky Terminal with about 74 acres of lease and preferential berthing area, more than double the current area of about 33 acres.

   The agreement also includes an expansion of the terminal to about 93 acres, planned for around March 2006.

   The port of Tacoma agreed with International Transportation Service to repave certain areas and provide new gantry cranes. The interface between the Husky Terminal and the port’s north intermodal yard will remain the same.

   “This realignment and future expansion at Tacoma is part of the I.T.S. terminal enhancement plans, which are aimed at making its terminals well prepared for handling steadily growing number of containers moving through the main gate ports along the U.S. West Coast as well as for accommodating larger container vessels that major shipping lines are deploying in U.S. West Coast trade,” “K” Line said in a statement.
