Strategically located at a major nexus of ocean and river shipping lanes, two interstate highways, and a continent-spanning rail network, the Port of Vancouver USA is a dynamic hub of global trade and the multipurpose port authority for Vancouver, Washington.
Established in 1912, the Port of Vancouver USA is a leader in marine and industrial business. The ideal gateway for connecting Asia and South America to the US midcontinent and Canada, the port handles more than 7 million tons of cargo each year, including wheat, mineral and liquid bulks, vehicles, and a broad range of project cargo. We also have more than 50 industrial tenants, ranging from stainless steel tank manufacturing to plastic injection molding to craft-beer malt distribution. Plus, the Terminal 1 development will turn Vancouver’s waterfront into a popular destination for the entire region with a host of exciting new retail, commercial, and residential amenities.
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.
