Dealing with Port Congestion on the West Coast? Try the Pacific Northwest
With unprecedented import volumes into United States ports, especially on the West Coast, Seattle and Tacoma offer you an alternative that could speed up your transit time.
If the backlogs at Southern California and East Coast ports are delaying your supply chain, it is worth considering re-routing through Seattle or Tacoma, where the delays are significantly lower than other ports on the West Coast.
From there, our Seattle-area facility offers a quick and reliable transload option for your cargo traveling through Pacific Northwest ports and onto the rest of the United States. The ports of Seattle and Tacoma both offer all primary rail services to the same inland destinations as other West Coast ports.
Speaking for the Northwest Seaport Alliance, Melanie Stambaugh said, “NWSA is well-positioned to be part of the solution in relieving some of the heavy congestion at gateways along the U.S. West Coast. Our supply chain can handle additional vessels, have them offloaded and loaded efficiently, and ensure cargo moves quickly onto its final destination.”
