Port of Portland to Re-open in January 2018

Container service at the US West Coast Port of Portland will  be resumed next year,  Oregon Live  reports. 

Swire Shipping has agreed to start offering a mix of general, non-containerized cargo and container services.  The calls will start beginning January 2018  at the Port of Portland’s Terminal 6, roughly every 35 days. The route will be from Portland to Australia and New Zealand, and then onto China, with a possible stop in South Korea before returning to Portland.

Portland Port’s former client Korean shipping operator Hanjin Shipping, ceased to call at the terminal after division arose between International Longshore and Warehouse Union and port operator ICTSI. Currently Portland Port is now not managed by ICTSI, but is self-managing.
