Port news: Maersk switching from Tacoma to Seattle

Didn’t notice this Tacoma News-Tribune story till the P-I published a short version: Maersk Line will switch its container-shipping calls from Tacoma to Seattle next spring. Doesn’t say which terminal will be used – but Seattle’s been freeing more spring/summer freighter space by clearing cruise ships out of Terminal 30 and moving them to the Magnolia side (91).

    I’ll miss seeing those big cruise ship behemoths on the way to and from downtown.

    I’m betting terminal 18; because Chine Shipping is moving from terminal 18 to take over the entire terminal 30, and Maersk signed a partnership deal with CMA, who is coming to terminal 18.

Sorry, comment time is over.
