Northwest ports raise tonnage, labor tariffs
The Northwest Marine Terminal Association, comprising public port authorities in Oregon and Washington states, said Wednesday that a number of member ports will be adjusting tariffs on July 1.
'In many instances, this will involve labor and or tonnage rate increases stemming from increases announced by the Pacific Maritime Association June 19,' NMTA Executive Officer Patti Fulghum said in a statement. 'Tariff rate increases may be instituted with less than 30 days' advance notice as a result of member ports being apprised of PMA changes on short notice. Parties with specific questions about tariff rates at a particular port are encouraged to contact that port or visit its website.'
The association represents the ports of Anacortes, Astoria, Bellingham, Coos Bay, Everett, Grays Harbor, Kalama, Longview, Olympia, Port Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Tacoma and Vancouver, USA.
