Port of Portland, Ore. to gain back container business

After being left without any container service since May 2016, the Port of Portland will begin receiving container cargo again in January when Swire Shipping begins calling the port’s Terminal 6.

   Oregon’s Port of Portland is set to gain back container business in January when Swire Shipping begins calling the port’s Terminal 6, according to a statement from Gov. Kate Brown’s office.
   Situated on the Columbia River, Terminal 6 facilitates auto imports and exports, and houses container facilities with five berths and eight rail tracks.
   The port has been without any container service since Westwood Shipping ceased operations at Terminal 6 back in May 2016.
   Swire’s service that is set to call the terminal will offer a mix of general, non-containerized cargo and container service at the port, according to a release issued by Gov. Kate Brown’s office.
   Swire will most likely call Terminal 6 on a monthly basis, with its service providing export shipments of Western Star trucks to Australia, export containers to Australia and New Zealand, and import containers from Asia.
   The trucks are manufactured by Daimler Trucks North America at the company’s Swan Island plant in Portland.
   Swire’s service is supported by a $250,000 Strategic Reserve Fund investment designed to help Oregon businesses get their products to international markets, and support Northwest Shippers.
   “Not only will new container service bring jobs for Oregonians, it also gives more options to Oregon companies as we work to maximize Terminal 6,” Gov. Brown said.
   “The port is focused on giving our local shippers a variety of options to move their goods efficiently,” said Port of Portland Executive Director Curtis Robinhold. “Most importantly, this signals that T-6 is open for business.”
