The Alabama State Port Authority (ASPA) joined Alabama Steel Terminals, LLC (AST) on March 31 for the dedication of a $36 million steel coil handling facility at the Port of Mobile. A site plan adopted by the Everett Port Commission for the former U.S. Air Force Mukilteo Tank Farm allows the port to execute property conveyance agreements with other jurisdictions. The port has been working for more than a decade to secure the 20-acre tank farm for transportation and community access purposes. The board of commissioners for the Mississippi State Port Authority has approved the purchase of the Huntington Ingalls Gulfport Composite Facility. The 116-acre location provides additional laydown area, rail access, and barge connections for current and future port tenants.
