Terminal 6 to see weekly container call


Terminal 6    Weekly container service is back in business at the Port of Portland's Terminal 6.
   A South Korean company, SM Line, announced it will be bringing weekly container shipping service back to Portland starting in January. 
   This news came soon after Governor Kate Brown's recent trade mission to South Korea, where she and Port officials met with SM Line executives. 
   "We are thrilled to welcome SM Line and give regional shippers more options and better connect Oregon businesses to global markets," said Curtis Robinhold, executive director at the Port of Portland. "This service will help reduce the number of trucks on the road and decrease regional environmental impacts of freight movement."
   SM Line is said to have chosen Portland for its close proximity to Oregon customers, lack of congestion, and access to on-site rail connections, which will allow products to move quickly beyond Portland.
