HOLIDAY CLOSURE – CESAR CHAVEZ’S BIRTHDAY – March 31 – The Port of Vancouver USA will be closed for receipt and delivery of cargo on Friday, March 31 in observance of Cesar Chavez’s birthday.

The Port of Vancouver USA is dedicated to the health of the economy, our community and the environment. As a sustainable port, we look at our operations in an all-inclusive manner, enhancing our profitability while operating responsibly within our larger community. We have created a sustainability plan with the goal to meet today’s global economic, environmental and social needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
The port formalized our sustainability efforts with the “We Can!” project by recognizing past sustainability accomplishments. This served as a template for measuring future changes to improve the programs already in place. On a regular basis, the port produces a Sustainability Report that helps the port evaluate the health of the economy, our community and the environment in relation to our sound practices.
