Everett Sees Milestone Container Move

The Port of Everett and shipping partner Brusco Tug and Barge achieved a major milestone last month in South Everett with the completion of the 1,000th direct container-on-barge aerospace cargo transport between the port’s Pacific Terminal and Mount Baker Terminal, its satellite shipping facility.

This means the “just-in-time delivery” of over 10,000 oversized airplane parts in support of the 747, 767, 777 and 777X airplane production lines.

“I’m proud of this strong partnership and the major impact it has had, and will continue to have, on our local and regional economies,” said Carl Wollebek, Chief Operating Officer for the port. “This logistics accomplishment, paired with the Port’s continued facility investments, represents our long-standing commitment to support the aerospace industry and job growth.”
