Located in Vancouver, Washington along the Columbia River, the Port of Vancouver USA is a multi-purpose port authority that has served as a global point of connection and a regional engine for economic growth for more than 100 years.
Established in 1912 to ensure public ownership of trade docks, the port is a leader in marine and industrial business, handling more than eight million tons of cargo each year. Products such as wheat, mineral and liquid bulks, vehicles and project cargoes make their way to and from our port by ship, train, truck or barge from points as far away as Asia and South America. The port is home to more than 50 industrial tenants, ranging from wood panel manufacturing to electronics recycling and small-batch beer malt distribution.
Whether through creating jobs, taking a proactive approach to environmental stewardship, or creating a new destination waterfront, the Port of Vancouver USA takes the long view and an optimistic approach to our work. We are always thinking ahead and finding ways to help the Vancouver community open doors, put people to work and connect to what’s possible.
