Port of Seattle

The Port of Seattle is the busiest container port in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. The port in 2015 formed the Northwest Seaport Alliance with the Port of Tacoma so that the two may cooperate on marketing efforts and their future development to better spend limited funds needed to modernize their container terminals so they can handle mega-ships plying the trans-Pacific trades.
