Boats and Trains

Finally, some good news on the freight front.

Yesterday’s Oregonian reports that the Port of Portland has a new container shipper.

Zim Integrated Shipping, out of Israel, will shift its Northwest port of call from Seattle to Portland. While 70% of the cargo they expect to bring in will be destined for our local market, 30% will head inland via rail.

Let’s hear it for Portland as a gateway city for goods from Greece, Turkey, Romania, Israel and Sri Lanka!

One response to “Boats and Trains”

  1. Its very good news! I don’t know if Portland has ever had a shipping line on this route.

    I was really happy to hear the news.
