OUR NEXT PROGRAM
March 18, 2015 — Lunch: Port Alliance-Tacoma and Seattle together
Port Alliance-Tacoma and Seattle together
Panelist CEO Port of Tacoma John Wolfe
The Seattle and Tacoma port commissions plan to form a Seaport Alliance to unify management of the two ports’ marine cargo terminals and related functions to continue our leading role in international trade and create more jobs for our region. The two ports will retain existing port commission governance and asset ownership.
The Tacoma and Seattle ports today are the third-largest container gateway in North America, and our marine cargo operations support more than 48,000 jobs. Combining the strengths of our two ports’ marine cargo operations will position our region to address competitive challenges and create new economic opportunities.
