The Port of Vancouver USA’s West Vancouver Freight Access project (WVFA) won a 2019 Engineering Excellence Grand Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Oregon. The Port of Virginia completed USDA’s Cold-Treatment Pilot Program, clearing the way for more refrigerated fruit imports. This will increase the overall capacity to handle refrigerated cargo by 66 percent.

Seaway cargo – including raw material for manufacturers and agricultural products – was up 28 percent when compared to the previous year.
