The Port of Portland has started a new rail shuttle between its Terminal 6 container terminal and the port of Seattle/Tacoma.
The new service, which has been launched with Burlington North and Santa Fe Railway, will operate five days a week.
“The rail service will complement the monthly container ship call by giving our local shippers another path to market,” said Curtis Robinhold, Port of Portland executive director. “We hope to continue building on this momentum and interest at Terminal 6.”
The announcement follows news that Swire Shipping will begin a monthly container call at Terminal 6 in January 2018.
