Latest Edition of Pacific Gateway Online; Port Offers Free Subscriptions

The Winter 2008-2009 edition of Pacific Gateway, the Port of Tacoma's award-winning magazine, is now available online.

Two cover stories offer retrospectives on the Port's 90th anniversary – its history, milestone achievements and executive leadership over the decades.

Present-day trade and economic issues are addressed in an article titled "What in the World is Going on with Trade?" This Q&A-format story presents a series of timely industry questions before a roundtable of the Port's international and domestic trade representatives.

Other Pacific Gateway feature stories examine a cargo transloading trend in the Pacific Northwest and the Port's growing relationship with Yantian International Container Terminals of Shenzhen, China. Also highlighted is the historic anniversary of the Puyallup Tribal Settlement, which made possible much of today's Port growth and regional prosperity.
