Port of Portland offers rail services for shippers

The Port of Portland has partnered with BNSF Railway to create a new option for moving container freight by way of railway at Terminal 6. Shippers can move their product on a rail shuttle to the Puget Sound ports. The new service will move containers between Portland and Seattle/Tacoma, where goods can be loaded onto ocean carriers. The rail service 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. We hope to continue building on this momentum and interest at Terminal 6,” said Curtis Robinhold, Port of Portland executive director.
