Port of Portland Continues to Operate

By Karen Robes Meeks

As vital infrastructure to the region, Port of Portland marine terminal facilities will stay open for operations while Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s Stay Home, Save Lives Executive Order is in place.

The port’s marine terminals remain open and operational, as they continue to help move critical goods in and out of the region.

According to the port, “While the port has seen some declines in auto imports and exports, its bulk marine facilities—which handle grains, potash and soda ash—are experiencing normal export numbers.”

South Korea shipping company SM Line continues to call at Terminal 6 weekly, said the port.
